    A LOT of people are accepted into university with grades below their offer. In 2015 42% of the people accepted into their firm choice in August missed their predictions by 2 or more grades.

    That isn't to say you shouldn't try to meet your offer - that way your place is guaranteed. If you miss your offer then you're reliant on universities having space.

    If all else fails there are a lot of options available in Clearing. Sometimes you might need to be flexible or consider subjects that you didn't consider initially - subjects that aren't offered at A level are very often unpopular at university because students are wary about trying something new. With a bit of research and investigation something less popular might be right up your street.

    If things don't go to plan then a year out to research more and get some experiences under your belt can be life changing in motivating you.

    I failed to meet my offers, retook my A2's and got into the same unis again the following year- its not the end of the world.
