    Hi,

    I’m in my second year of completing my business extended diploma and I’m expected to get very high grades. But my attendance at college is really bad- the reason being I’m taking care of my mother who is disabled and ill and I’m legally her carer as well so it’s my responsibility either way. I have college 3 days a week but I go in once or twice a week barely. Basically when I can, because I’m taking care of her and I cannot leave her on her own etc etc. Anyways obviously I applied for University and I’ve got offers but that was based on me getting DMM which is very easily achievable as I’m expected to get D*D*D*\ D*D*D, but now that I’m 80% on for considering to leave college I will have 84 points from my D*D* that I achieved the year before from the 90 credit diploma I did. So with 84 points I “qualify” for the foundation courses but I don’t want to do that. I was wondering if I could directly go through to the 3 year degree course. Obviously I’m not hoping or even thinking about top universities such as; oxford, Cambridge etc. Also another thing to mention is that I have a D in maths (🙄) and I’ve resat 2 times already and I don’t have it in me to pass it- I might do a level 2 equivalent to that one day but for now this is what I’m worried about. I live in London and I want to study in London. So if you have any helpful, non spiteful suggestions then please leave them below!



    P.S: I want to study English Literature but I’m all for alternatives related to the subject or a different subject that I’ll look into to see if I’m interested.

    If you don't meet the entry requirements for a degree course you're unlikely to be able to get on to one. You either have to do the foundation course or have to stay in college and get what is required for the degree level course. Do you need the maths?
