The period in which I studied in College was difficult for me in terms of my situation at home. I had some problems with my family and I was diagnosed delayed sleep phase syndrome and therefore I found it extremely difficult to wake up early mornings and this affected the rest of my days. During exam time I had really little sleep for my exams (1-2 hours at most) and this reflects in the results I achieved because I was achieving significantly better grades at home whilst doing past papers in timed conditions. I also had 12 exams this year, which is double the amount usual exams I should have because I had to retake exams from previous years due to the issues I had. Just before the 2015 exam period I fractured my hand which was stressful for me and I feel that I could not revise as efficiently and I had to go to the hospital fairly regularly. I was extremely disappointed not achieving the entrance requirements this year. I am hoping to fix my sleeping pattern and hope to achieve the entrance requirements this year. I am in fact considering taking medication for my sleeping problem to ensure that I can sleep well in a suitable cycle. I will not need to do too much work in terms of A level revision and therefore I will treat this year almost as a gap year and learn programming, Further maths and work at a computer and mobile repair and accessory shop in preparation for my first year at university.
Do you think uni's will understand ( Uni's like Imperial and Warwick/ Southampton etc...)
I am not giving excuses, I had a really hard time this past few years and It is extremely frustrating. Thanks guys.
