I don't know what Unis to apply to anymoreWatch
I got my AS results yesterday
B in Maths
C in Further Maths
C in Chemistry (was one mark off a B)
C in Physics (was one mark off a B)
I wanted to apply to Imperial for Mechanical Engineering but that's out of the window now so do you know what I can do now? Should I still apply to UCL? Or what London universities do I have a shot at for Mechanical Engineering that have good job prospects? Is it worth getting my Chemistry and Physics remarked for the sake of UCAS application considering it's £50 each paper and it's a gamble (and my parents probably won't be on board with it cuz they're really pissed at me and won't even talk to me).
I'm really lost and my parents think it's the end of the world. I don't want to retake a year but I don't know what do.
Don't worry, it's not the end of the world!! Most unis will make offers in terms of your predicted A Level grades, but can take your AS grades into account too. I would advise calling up the Admissions teams in the unis you're thinking of applying to, explain your situation and then ask them if they would consider your application before actually listing them on your UCAS.
In terms of grades, here at Surrey we ask for AAB for the bachelors Mech Eng degree, and we're half an hour from London. It might be worth giving our Admissions team a call to see if they can advise you on your situation. Of course, the advice they give will be specific to this uni, but it should give you an idea of what unis take into consideration when assessing an application for Mech Eng. Feel free to give them a ring on 01483682222 if you wish
Regarding retaking a year, in the grand scheme of things it's not that long to get to where you want to be in the long run, so if it does come to that don't be too worried. Just get your head down and work your hardest and it'll fly by
And don't worry, your parents will eventually realise that it's not the end of the world!
All the best,
