I'm facing such a predicament and I feel as though all the stuffing has been knocked out of me.
I've been applying to university, but nothing has been going right for me and I'm yet to receive an offer which is frustrating because I feel as though I'm working so hard.

I was planning on studying architecture at university this year, but now I worry... Is this the right course for me? If I can't get into the university I want to is there any point in going this year (for £9,000 fees)? I'm having such a wobble.
Now I just don't know where to apply because all of them have entry requirements of AAB or AAA and I'm not even sure if I'll get a B in Physics this year.
Fortunately, I've come up with a back-up plan which is studying on the Foundation Course for Art & Design which is a year long and the college just up the road is recruiting at the moment for this course. I've applied there because I hear that art universities really like this degree. It's just a shame because I'd set my heart on university this year so I'll be disappointed if I have to spend another year stuck in my hometown.
I'm sorry to be so negative! I've just had a really bad run of bad luck and set-backs. Here are pros and cons of taking the foundation course:
♥ I can think more whether architecture is the right course for me.
♥ I can spend more time working and save up for another year.
♥ I may be able to get into a better university.
♥ I won't be going to university this year.
♥ I'll have to stay in my home town for another year.
♥ I'll have to reapply to UCAS and go through the whole process again.
Can anyone offer some words of wisdom? Have you been through the university process?
