    I failed my A levels, not because i'm dumb, but because I struggled in the transition from Gcse to A level. I was already suffering from Schizophrenia near the end of my Gcse's and I still some how did well, not great but I definitely got my 5 a*-c's. I ended up flunking my first AS and I retook in the same school thinking i'd be okay, but sudden resignations of teachers and new people around me didn't really help. I was too scared to say i'm not doing well so I just kept nodding and smiling and now I came out with Very Very bad grades and I can't really blame anyone else than me. Is their no was for me to go to university i've started taking medication and would like a chance and i don't know if there is anything out there for me. Please can someone give me some advice and I've thought about retaking a lot but I really would not like to.

    There's an extended degree option from the University of Hertfordshire. It's suited for people who didn't get their expected A-Levels.

    Try your luck!

    You really might be better taking a year out, so that you get better and can focus on studying when you restart. If you don't want to then you could try either The Open University (this is distance learning, so studying from home - this takes a lot of dedication and motivation) or taking a foundation year at university.
