  • If you have got into your first-choice of university I really wouldn't worry about it. Sure they will look at your A-level grades but also your performance at university and the extra curricular experience you take part in. My advice would be to get some informal work experience now at a local firm before your uni start date and put that on your CV.

  • It depends how bad your grades are and what uni you have got into. If you have got 3 B's, and got into an average red brick uni then that doesn't look great. But if you got ABB and wanted AAB or AAA and got into a russell group uni then you'll be fine.

  • Ruined no (unless you are one of those Magic Circle or bust types but even then not all hope is gone) but you have got more pressure to get extra-curricular activities and solid degree results. But you are aware of this which may of your peers may well not be - so you can start now and get ahead.

    But by no means have you ruined anything - so don't panic!
