It`s never too late. Your interview is your chance to sell yourself. I didn`t get fabulous exam results either. I was a slacker at school lol. But at my interview I just told them I knew I hadn`t done well, but that I wanted the chance to prove myself etc. Just try to be as enthusiaistic as you can. I know grades are important, but they`ll take enthusiasm and commitment to the course into consideration too, regardless of the grades.
My interview was easy. I was just smiley and calm and he told me I had a very good reference and grades so I was in. ^w^ Sorry if i sound stupidly up myself, i'm just chuffed coz it's an amaaaaazing college. -squeeee- I can't believe they let me in!!! XD
I was never at school as I had a lot of problems during my GCSE's and I really hated school, however I was predicted C's and above still as I luckily caught up with all the work I missed. And as for revising, I didn't revise for any of my exams apart from a little bit for Music and these are the grades I got.
Business and Communication Systems: A Business Studies: B Music: B English Language: B Maths: C German: C Textiles: C Religious Studies: C English Literature: D [It was hard haha] Applied Science: DD [4 marks away from CC but my teacher lost a piece of my coursework which I had to do again which gave me lower marks.]
And then I had no idea what I wanted to do afterwards, applied for college at the last minute. Got an interview about a week before college started and got in and I got one of the last two places on the Media Course. I now love college, it's so much better than school. My school were begging me to stay on for Sixth Form, but I couldn't wait to leave the place.
