    Since you chose Keele as your insurance, and they've offered you a foundation year, sounds to me like a good option. You might find something through Clearing but you presumably researched Keele originally so you know what you're getting into - which is a benefit.

    Have a look see whats on offer imo foundation years are good for just this situation becayse it cna help you brush up on your skills and give you a much improved chance of a better degree. You have scope for improving so its soemthing that would benefit you.

    Your other option is resit if you feel you could ahve done much better. Talk to your teacher and be honest about your academic abilities.

    Hello,

    It's completely up to you. If you feel like a foundation year might help you brush up in some areas, that might be worth considering.

    Don't rule Clearing out though if it's something you would like to consider. If you want to talk to us about your options here at Leicester, give us a call on 0116 373 6000.

    Good luck!
