    I failed my first year of university, I chose to study Media and towards the end of the year I became very ill (depression and anxiety) I suffered with this all summer (2015) and finally went to the doctor in September. I found out I failed my first year - I was extremely ill at the time so I wouldn't have gone back regardless and wanted to take a year out to get better and choose a different course and university that's right for me.

    I've been working since and want to re apply through clearing this year as I was in no fit state to apply earlier.
    Would I need to re do my whole UCAS or could I use my previous one I did at college? Where would be best to get my references from? I'm pretty clueless on all of this as I've been out of education for about 6 months.
    Help would be appreciated, thankyouu!

    I m afraid you'd need to redo it all. Someone you've worked for or knows you in an academic situation would be best for a reference.
