    from my personal experience I wouldn't do another degree and then go into physio and Iw ouldn't start a degree only then to quit after a year...........both options have affects on funding and I wouldn't advocate that to anyone lol PLus, I don't think it would look too good on your application that you started another degree but didn't finish. I know you've already done it, but I think the best thing to do would be to take another year out and reply. Get a job as a physio assistant or something else related to earn money and just keep applying till you get in.........................

    What Jackie said is correct.

    If you really want to go to uni this year rather than wait and reapply I would do a relevant to physio foundation degree and complete it. That way your funding for the physio degree is protected and you will have gained practical experience.

    I would suggest either Sports Therapy or Complementary Therapies for the foundation degree. It will take two years but that is not a bad thing really given the current lack of graduate jobs available. So you will have five years before having to find a physio job!

    You should use the two years to make sure that your A level grades are as high as possible, resitting modules if need be. You don't necessarily need to sit in a school to repeat them.

    I seem to recall that Liverpool/John Moore do a foundation year at the start of physio - might be worth looking at if you miss the taregt grades

    then again if you're going to take another year over it you might as well re-do your A levels or something?

    if somewhere thinks you're a good prospect but underperformed and they have spaces on the Access course I'd say you were in with a good chance - they won't want a course to run with spare capacity

    I've worked as a teacher until recently and every year on results day I see students who miss their target grades ring up and get offered places on other courses. There's no guarantee of course but it's definitely worth a shot

    hi, i messed up my biology exams and knew i wouldn't make the grade that i was offered at sheffield hallam, which was a b, however i have now got an unconditional offer at sheffield hallam doing a health and social care profession degree, its only a year long so i can then enrol on their physio course when i complete it, as well as that it also gives me the opportunity of looking at other health care professions like radiography and O.T and i would be able to enrol on one of those courses if i changed my mind.

    May I just point out that this course is actually a foundation course in preparation for a degree, not a degree course in its own right. Just in case anyone gets confused!
