"I was told to ring King's College on the day if there was a problem with the grades. I went into school the morning the results came out. It was quite horrendous - all 120 girls cramming to look at a piece of paper on a wall. I had a C for human biology, a D for home economics, and an N for chemistry. I thought maybe I could still get into King's. But they told me there was no way as I'd failed chemistry.
"So I rang North London, a bit worried about whether they'd have me. But they said they'd love to, as I had the right A-level profile. Then it hit me that I didn't really know what this course was I had signed up for! I felt like a bit of a failure. But during my freshers week I felt a lot more reassured. In the end I got a 2:1 and really enjoyed the experience."Reuse content
