    1. Yes it would really.
    2. yes you should improve your personal statement in your gap year.
    3. Yes you do, you can apply as an independent student and then get someone at your college to write the reference or you can go through the college using their buzzword.
    4. You would make a new application but should be able to use the old account i think.

    Hi my situation is exactly the same. What grades did you get? I have just finished year 13 and have not been able to get in the uni I wanted to go into and do the degree (Law LLB) so I am thinking to resit some modules and hopefully up my grade. However I am worried as to whether I am able to even resit the modules as the syllabus has changed for OUR. I know how you feel as I am in the exact situation!
