    Okay so basically I'm currently in year 12 about to sit my AS levels, but in September I'm going to music college to study music business and it's a level 3 so me getting in was based on my GCSEs (8A*s & 3As) so since I've already got in I've got NO motivation to revise. I want to do well in my ASs to have them as a back up but at the same time I've hated 6th form so much I've barely paid attention this year.
    I've done a few practice papers and got Bs & Cs... for just ASs is that bad? considering I won't get my A2s to add to that?
    It's stressing me a lot, but I just can't seem to focus because I know I'm going to college.
    I know they're a back up plan and everything, but if I'm going into music business how much do you think they will matter?

    AS levels that I'm taking:
    Maths (I can easily get an A in that though)
    Critical Thinking

    Should I be revising more for them, considering I'm leaving? Are Bs/Cs bad? All my target grades are As

    Thank You!

    "Are Bs/Cs bad?" of course not. You're very intelligent.

    Aww, thanks. I just worry a lot. My brother's very academic so there's a lot of pressure
