So I have DE, a B in EPQ (Which is half an a level) and pending last a level as I’ll be resitting it this summer. I’m planning on applying soon before this year’s deadline but what I’m bringing to the table sucks ASS. If my mental health was much better I would have gotten much better results but that’s just how it is I guess. Do you think I’ll have a chance??

1) You'll need to look at Unis that quote their offers in 'UCAS points' rather than grades, and also have a look relevant Foundation courses that would give you entry to the main degree.
2) If you have a diagnosed MH condition, and are now receiving treatment, then your school may be able to let each Uni know about your 'mitigating circumstances' and they may be prepared to take this into account. Talk to whoever co-ordinates UCAS applications at your school.

Ah Thankyou, the only issue is is that I am applying as an individual- as I left college in June 2019.

They may still be able to help - who are you using as your referee?

Ask your last school. They will be happy to do this for you. Just bring them up to speed on what you've done since you left school and the health problems you have had. They can also mention this in your reference.
