    I just received a call from my Sixth Form telling me my grades were not high enough for my firm or insurance choice. This really killed my spirit because I would have gotten the grades had I not fallen badly ill when the exam period started. So right now I'm kind of freaking out cause I don't know what to do, any help would be appreciated.

    a) your sixth form shouldn't have told you this - are you sure it was them and not a "friend" pulling a prank? It's unfortunately common for "jokes" like this this time of year.
    b) you need to check track tomorrow to see whether you've been accepted with lower grades
    c) have a look on http://search.ucas.com/ to see if there are any alternatives that appeal to you (which tbh is sensible even if you hadn't had a call from your sixth form)
