so i haven’t done well at all the light my a levels and have suffered with ‘trauma’ which held me back a while and also suffered from an eating disorder which i believe may have impacted my motivation which has lead to my predicted grades being very bad. With the covid 19 outbreak my last minute revising and any improvement i’ve begun making has meant that i won’t be near my requirements for uni. i was hoping to go to plymouth or aberystwyth to study zoology. doesn’t anyone know if i would have any chance of getting into a foundation year possibly through clearing with very bad results (we’re talking U-D) in bio chem and math??

While you can try for a foundation year, it may be worth simply redoing the last year of college and the ALevels, especially if your past issues are not as bad. An extra year to not have U's following you round when you can do better sounds ideal. The more you learn now the easier uni will be in the long term.

Other than that, ring the admissions for your uni and ask them, they know what grades they will take and if they think you'll struggle with the course in the future with the low grades. They also know if they have space and which foundation courses they offer.

Good luck.
