No and even if they did, I can certainly say that they just want your loan money.

Are these A level grades?What degree are you looking to study? Many unis will let you on a Foundation year with DD.

Try putting grades and course into here:

My friend's boyfriend got in with D's but it wasn't a good university, especially for what career he wants in the future.

Even if they did don’t you think university will be a little too hard for you? Especially since your grades are pretty low?

Decide on a few subjects and search on Foundation years - seriously you can get into a decent uni. Ignore the silly comments ...

I'd say your main problem is not knowing what course to do. The subject is absolutely the most important thing to decide about going to uni - much more than which university. Don't apply to anything until you've decided which subject is it you're really interested in studying for 3 years.

If you want to go to a decent uni, you probably want to look at foundation courses, some of which would probably take you.

Another question to ask yourself is why you want to try university again. If you don't know what subject you're interested in then presumably you don't have a specific career in mind, so what exactly do you want to get out of a degree?

There are some foundation courses that accept DDD but you have to do a foundation year so 1 year of learning the basics.

No but it could be the case for this particular situation.

I’m not giving you a lecture sunshine, you sound like one of those dossers who go to university to waste time and come away with nothing.
