    I am going to take a year out of education to travel and I have a few questions about applying to uni after a levels.

    - Who writes your reference?
    - is it common for a university to give an offer to somebody that has BBC but the requirements are BBB ?

    - is there anything else I should know ?

    normally people would ask someone from their old school to write their reference and i wouldnt recommend to apply for somewhere you dont have the grades for unless you'd be doing resits.

    - often the best source will be your old school

    - you would have to ask the university
