Ever since i got my A-level results(c,c,e) i have been researching on what the next best step is for me. Thus leading me to enroll into Sheff Hallam Uni mostly because my mom really wanted me to go uni. This was despite me wanting to retake year 13(Literally played video games for 2 years , yes i know... my fault. As well as paying little to no attention in lessons and only revising days before for y12 and y13 jan mocks)However, i really want to retake and will be able to convince mum, but its just the question if i can drop out now? Also is it possible to leave now without a penny to my name?Although i do understand it will be annoying for the uni. Btw want to retake for many reasons such as getting into a better uni, more time to be prepared and i know IF i put the work in i will be getting higher grades.

Yes you can drop out, but I am not sure on the finances. I had to defer my place due to medical reasons two years ago (went last year yay) and all I had to pay for was the accommodation deposit, however luckily my uni were nice and wrote it off.

Yes give them a call today - if you haven’t enrolled yet you should be ok apart from any accommodation deposit you have paid but see what they say

Hi BiggestGrinder,

I can understand that this puts you in a difficult situation, but you have to do what is right for you! What course were you going to study at Hallam? If this is really something you don't want to study then it makes sense to reconsider your options. Call up our admissions team on 0114 225 5533 and have a chat with them, they are there to help you work out what is best for you and will be able to give you some great advice.

However, I would carefully consider if you are going to enjoy retaking your a-levels, would this mean you have to go back into classes? Will you get on with the year below? Do you have a uni and course in mind and know what you need to achieve? I'm sure it will be fine and if that is what you want to do you can focus on what needs to be done, but I would have a good think. They will also be able to tell you about the financial implications if any.

Let me know if you have any questions!
- Ella
