Summary

The student pilot, returning from a solo training session, carried out a normal circuit and approach for landing, but the aircraft bounced slightly on touchdown. The pilot applied some forward elevator control but the aircraft veered about 90 degrees to the left and ran off the runway. The pilot unsuccessfully attempted to control the swing with right rudder, then applied full power to go-around. She then observed another aircraft taxiing and turned the aircraft left to avoid that aircraft. The left wing struck the ground and the aircraft cartwheeled.
