    I applied to do biomedical science at LJMU, needed BBC to get in.

    I ended up getting AAC and I feel as if I could have applied for better unis. I know there is adjustment and stuff but I've got my accommodation and my mind is set on LJMU.

    Does reputation REALLY matter to future employers? I mean would they prefer me to get a 1st at LJMU, or a 2:1 at somewhere like Manchester or Southampton?

    I thought that when I got my results but I'm like you, I'd have had to change everything and... cba.

    I think (and hope for our sakes) that employers will value our skills and abilities rather than where we got them from, looking at the stats JMU has similar employment and graduate pay to other unis so I'm not too fussed.

    Reality is not.
    Adjust for reality, personal dreams, and optimism and your fine doing anything.

    Plenty of people with worse grades than you try to get into unis better than LJMU. I think you're wasting your A level grades and could get into somewhere better that would increase your employability if an employer was choosing between you and someone else with the exact same grades and work experience as you.
