I Messed Up My A Levels - What Can I Do Now?

I Messed Up My A Levels - What Can I Do Now?


Today is A level results day, and as is the case every year, anxiety is running high. Right now, you may be feeling like your A level results will determine the rest of your life, but it doesn't have to be that way. Ultimately, it is a small hurdle in the grand scheme of life, and there are always alternative options - even if you didn't get the grades you wanted.


Can you get into uni with bad A levels?

If you didn't get the grades you needed to secure a place at your chosen university, you may still be able to get into a university via the clearing process.

But don't act too quickly - before you make an impulsive decision and scramble to get into any university that will take you, it's worth taking a moment to think about what you actually want to do with the next few years of your life. On reflection, you may decide that learning a trade would suit you better than going to uni and getting a degree.


Why choose training over university?

Training is a good way to build a marketable skill set, and while certain careers require a degree, a university education is far from a guarantee of future employment. Learning a trade is arguably a far better way to achieve job stability in modern-day Britain.

Every day, people throughout the UK rely on the expertise of tradespeople. Water, heat and electricity are among our most basic needs, and the people who ensure that these utilities are always available - plumbers, electricians, gas engineers and so on - will always be in demand.

Here are just a few reasons to choose a trade course over a university degree:

  • No student loans
  • Job stability
  • Get qualified faster
  • Start earning sooner
