Hello all.

After receiving my results on the 17th of August, I was awarded the following grades:

A*, B, E

The E was in Computer Science - a degree I was planning on taking in University. I still want to go to University, but after attempting to go through clearing via. phoning up each University (my track STILL hasn't updated, believe it or not), the only offer I received was from Leeds Becket, ranked 125th out of the 129 Universities in the UK.

How would I go about possibly resitting the A level in a college/sixth form in a year? I contacted some close universities and they said that they could only offer a 2 year A level, but couldn't offer me some sort of fast track entry.

Currently feeling like a failure and lost in the world. Thanks for reading!

I planned on taking Computer Science BsC Hons at Lancaster University (firm choice). They originally wanted AAB, dropped the grade requirement to ABB after receiving my personal statement etc. but upon clearing said that I would've needed a C in Computer Science for them to accept me.
