    Hi
    Like everyone in the country im quite nervous for the 20th of august.
    Realistically, im 90% sure i havent got the BCC i needed, in 2 subjects i have probably got a BB or BC, but in biology im thinking E/D! Plus i was hoping to start a good uni to do bio!
    If you were in the same scenario, would you:

    A) GO THROUGH CLEARING and see what other subjects are available but at good or standard uni's

    B) TAKE A GAP YEAR AND RETAKE, get a full time job for a year but just go to college to retake the module/s in jan?

    Your input will be highly appreciated

    Could you just go through clearing to see what is available and if there is nothing available that you want to do go on a gap year? Then you don't have to decide right now.

    Get your grades and then see. If you just miss out on the offer, they'll probs let you in still. If they don't, check Clearing to see if anything suits you. If so, do that; if not, take a year out.

    I say see what there is available in clearing and if there's nothing that appeals to you go for the gap year.
