    I'm so sorry to hear that you're in this position and hope that your father's health improves soon.

    I would make sue that your school/college is aware of your situation so that you can get as much support as possible. Your AS grades aren't bad at all and if you work hard I'm sure that you could get into a very respectable university. Please don't worry whether or not you are 'ready to go to university' because you sound very mature so I don't see why you wouldn't be ready for this next stage in your life. Furthermore, universities will be understanding of your situation and it will be considered when you apply.

    All the best,
