Is it worth it taking a gap year and then going through clearing for a foundation year for international development at SOAS Or should I just go to the uni that has already offered me a place (Westminster) to do accounting but then change course when im there, but they aren't that great for this course.
This is really stressing me out that I didn't get to do the foundation year at SOAS as they were full and the deadline had closed the day before when I enquired about the foundation course. I was on the phone to them on results day and i wasn't aware of my options regarding a foundation year, nor did they mention I could take this route. Now I don't know what to do.

But I don’t want to have to be rejected from
SOAS if I reapply without the foundation year on UCAS again since my predicted grades are bad at a D for bio and I ended up getting an E in my alevel results. But if I manage to get at least a B if I resit that will make my grades BCC do you think they will still take me. They’re entry requirement for the coirse is ABB.

if you can resit your a level if allowed and accepted by the uni (ask before hand) should do so. You should also be doing an almost year long apprenticeship / work-placement along with your studies to also make you stand out more.
