I only have one A level exam left to go and I'm afraid they have not gone as well as I had hoped. I certainly don't think I've failed anything, but it's more than likely I'll be getting CCC which is very different to the ABB I was predicted.

When I apply for clearing I need to know what the absolute BEST university I can get into for Politics and International relations is so that I can look into their course and location early.

Additionally, my insurance choice is Kent who are asking for BBB, is there any chance they would still take me with CCC?

Any suggestions/advice would be very helpful, thanks!

A grade or two drop and they may let you in but generally not more than that.
Would you do a foundation year?

I would definitely do a foundation year if it meant going to a better university. Any ideas on specific universities that would offer this for Politics and International relations?

Hi, although it's good to have a plan B and C, you don't yet know how well (or badly) you've done. Leave those worries to the examiners and the women and men with pointy heads who make the grade boundaries. Who knows, you may well wake up on 15 August to see all your dreams fulfilled.

So, plan C (for Clearing): Swansea University, for example, will admit you to the 4-year International Relations with a Foundation Year BA (Hons) with as low as DDD. There are other still options in universities with excellent reputations.

Take a look around, so that you have other options up your sleave should the worst really come to the worst.

Hope for the best, and plan for the worst.
