Basically, I had surgery at the time of As exams (Maths, Eco and Span) so didn't get to take them all I had to get an agroaetat.
Now my predicted grades are BEE and I'm getting my school to explain my circumstances in a referral. I was working towards studying Economics at a good uni such as UCL, Bristol, Lse, Nott etc.
Now I'm studying like a motherfcker everyday and I'm wondering if its even possible/Worth it. I basically feel like if I don't get into a good uni ill never get a good job in the financial sector and never have the good life my parents had. I know this isn't always true but thats just how I see it.
Is it possible at all that I could still get into these unis?

Absolutely, they take into account circumstances. As long as they are mentioned to ucas by your school and you’re a genuinely able student I’d imagine most places would consider you (except for oxbridge).

Stop panicking! I had an operation during my AS year and got B,D, E... I managed to persuade the sixth form to put my predicted grades as B, C, C... then in my A2 year I was basically there 40% of the year, had to leave one exam early and had a complete breakdown...they applied for a special circumstance, and I got in to my chosen uni with B, B, D and a C in EPQ! So it’s achievable! But you need to relax and trust your self! If you know you are capable then you can do it! But don’t think that if you don’t succeed that’s the end of the line! There’s so many options to choose from!
