    So I'm going to send my UCAS application off in a few weeks and I'm slightly confused about something. I'm applying with an Access to HE Diploma, however I already have three A-levels at grade B which I gained in 2016. Throughout my A-levels, I suffered with incredibly bad anxiety and mild depression, so I know my grades aren't an accurate reflection of my capabilities. I'm in a much better place now where I feel I'm up to achieving my academic potential. I'm aiming to go to uni's where the entrance requirements are AAB-AAA and I kinda wanted to explain this issue in my application, but I have no idea how.

    Desperately hoping someone can offer any advice.

    Thank you
