    So, if by a really really unlucky shot that I don't meet my grades at all for my firm and insurance choice and then decide I do not want to be put through clearing and go to my other not-so-great uni options below that, what happens?

    Is there a chance for me to apply for an apprenticeship after the 18th August?

    Also, the Year 13s this year, are they allowed to resit any exams they failed? I am curious to know this because this year during my exams, I saw some Year 13s from last year who came back to re-take some exams. I just wanted to know if it possible for our year?

    I am confused right now. Last year I was like 'Nah, forget university, I want an apprenticeship' but then I failed finding any and suddenly got good grades ABBC for my AS (dropped the subject for the C - so that means ABB) and decided to research all summer 2015 for a good uni course/university. And like everyone else, I worked my butt off with the UCAS/personal statement and got Kings College and Queen Mary for Computer Science (firm and insurance). So I don't really want to switch back to the 'I want to do an apprenticeship,' cuz of all the hard work I put in.

    Overall, I am going to have to see what happens on results day.

    What happens is whatever you want to do, there's nothing stopping you doing an apprenticeship or you could apply for a job and then reapply to university next year.
