Basically, my results were good enough for me to get into my firm choice of uni. However, a series of events has resulted in me no longer feeling like my firm uni is the best choice for me, and the time they have taken to release me from my contract has resulted in the vast majority of clearing vacancies including my insurance choice to be gone. I have managed to get an offer from Manchester for my course, but feel disenchanted by the experience and no longer have any excitement for uni.
I know others are in a far worse situation than myself, but does anyone going through a similar situation have any advice? I'm currently considering just forgetting uni altogether, despite the fact that I've been looking forward to this for years.

You need to remember that uni is a big investment and it's not worth going just because 'everybody does it'. You don't want to be paying off debts later on for a degree you're not happy with. You still have loads of time to decide whether you want to go to uni or not, especially if you're just leaving school now. If you have serious doubts that persist through the holidays, it might be better to turn down your place at Manchester (or try to defer it, but not sure if they'd allow it). Then you can find something productive to do in your gap year and - if you do decide that university is for you - you can reapply for the next year.I know a surprising amount of people who started uni not very sure about it, were too scared to drop out early on and now feel 'stuck' where they are. You do not want to be in this situation; taking a year out now is much easier (especially if you can stay with your parents) than dropping out midway through a degree.
