    Hi,I'm 17 and just dropped out of college to get a full time job but now I'm regretting it. I'm just wondering is it possible to get into uni without A levels? I am currently doing a level 3 nvq in business and marketing and then going onto doing my level 4 if they count for anything? I am also studying to do my a level in psychology for the end of next year but obviously 1 a level isn't enough to get me into uni. Just need some advice on what routes I can take in order to get a place studying psychology e.g. An access course but I'm not sure what one of them is,would I be suitable for one?? Any advice is appreciated because I'm stressing out right now and think I've made the wrong decision!!! (

    Not many universities accept NVQ's for first year entry, i think you should either do an access to science course or look as to whether you'd meet the entry criteria for a foundation year anywhere

    I've been looking at access courses but a lot of them you have to be 19+ to apply for,is this true? I'll be 18 next year when i will want to do it.
