    Basically your boy had sick gcses( like bare A*'s) but bombed out at A levels so your boy had to settle for a dead university. Speaking to people they seem to be surprised by the uni i'm when I tell them my Gcses. Many of them got only like a few A's at best. I don't want to sound arrogant but i'm considering dropping out and retaking my A-Levels as I feel I should be at a better uni than this with more academic people. Am I being arrogant (since I did bomb my final year of A levels) or is it perfectly reasonable to feel like this. I'm 100% sure If I retook I would get much improved grades

    If you completely messed up but you know you can do a lot better then it may be worth retaking.
    But let's put this into context(okay, I'm only year12, but hear me out): how well is well? And how badly is bombed?

    Ngl that's a bit of a drop man. I'd retake esp if you want to get into competitive unis.
    I could totally wreck you in terms of GCSEs, lucky I'm definitely not arrogant :P
    Good luck with it

    Are you being arrogant? Sure. I mean, A-Levels are a test of your commitment and memory, more so than a test of your intelligence. Natural intelligence like you had at GCSE may be a good starting point, but it won't get you good A-Level grades. Hard work will.

    Your call. Don't assume it'll be an easy ride.

    Just don't repeat whatever mistakes you made last time and do the A Levels again, that's what I would do in your shoes.

    Arrogance, maybe, screw what other people think though, no one is going to give you a well paid job on a plate. Get stuck in.

    Nah mate f*** what people say. You know you could of done much better than that so yeah I'd suggest you get a first class during your current year at your uni and then try to transfer to another uni if that's what you want.

    You... Know that you could finish out the year and switch universities with your improved grades, right?

    I know plenty of people who had that kind of drop, it's not uncommon, just accept it and move on.

    If you really want to you should. But A-levels are a massive step up from GCSE which would probably explain why you didn't do so well.

    I will never accept it, in life we face obstacles it is until you overcome those obstacles then you can call yourself a real man. That's my nindo my ninja way. GIVE UP ON ME GIVING UP
