What are my options?
My firm is Southampton and I need A*AA.
My insurance is Bath and need AAA.
Is it worth retaking A-levels or should I just get a job in the field of study i'm interested in?

You wouldn’t have got the offers if they didn’t think you were capable!? What are your predicted grades, and what grades do you think you’re gonna get?

Well don’t be disheartened You still don’t know your results, miracles can happen! In the mean time, once your exams are all over, then research what courses tend to be on clearing, what university you wouldn’t mind going too, and if you still want to do the same course etc. Then on results day, be on the ball looking at clearing! The spaces can go up fast but try not to worry too much. It all works out in the end. Good luck!

there'll be options with AAB and lower in clearing if you think you've dropped a grade.

Cardiff, Exeter and Swansea are all likely to be in clearing in the same area of the country. Lancaster and Loghborough worth looking at elsewhere. You will need to check whether they are in clearing when it opens.

You can't do anything until August - and actually you may have done okay, or okay-enough for them to still accept you.

(Everyone feels like this after exams - stop panicking)
