    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently studying at quite a low ranked university and I have been considering dropping out. My A Levels are not great due to reasons which I won't go into but I improved at uni as I'm currently on track to getting a First.

    I have been thinking about graduate prospects and thinking that maybe I am capable of going to a better university, however if I finish this year, I would have to do an Access course which I will have to allow a year to do. I am already 20 (21 in September) so if I do this, I will be 22 when I start the course... I'm quite torn with what to do. I'm studying Psychology. Any advice?
