I think they should tbh as that way the goverment could afford to give us all free tuition fees. Why should you be allowed to go to uni with EEE at A-level? It's absolutely ridiculous IMO.

So you don't want to go uni then?


And I'd say no although those who are obviously lazy are far less likely to get in.

Would you count yourself as an 'underachiever', given that you're taking three years to complete college, when most people have no problem doing it in two?

Yeah,I'm with Vidachick.
If, like her, I will get AAAAA at A level, then maybe I'll feel worthy of going.

Why start a thread that's almost identical to another one still going? Then again you even copy your own threads!

I got bad grades at A-Level, but this was due to the quality of teaching at my school (which in turn really affected my motivation). I ended up with glandular fever in my second year, and effectively took A-level Music Tech (AS and A2) in two months. I got Ds in my final results, but after a phone interview with the university they let me on straight away. I got a first that year.

What I'm saying is grades say nothing about circumstance, and - sometimes - ability.

I think everyone should have the chance to go to uni if that's what they want to do - regardless of their grades.

Going to university shouldn't only be an opportunity for the 'elite'.

why does someone in their "3rd year of college" have a right to say who should and should not go to uni? Different strokes for different folks! Some people who havent been able to achieve at a level may knuckle down if theyre doing a course theyre genuinely interested in

So why have academic criteria at all?

Well hold on a minute vidachick, you have severely underachieved throughout your college career haven't you? You've admitted that yourself. In fact, it got so dire your tutor refused to write you a reference. You've taken 3 years to complete college and lets be honest your uni replies aren't looking too hopeful.
