    These predicted grades are based on how well I feel I have done in the exams. I'm asking for advice given that I feel the grades aren't very good:

    ICT (equivalent) - B
    Maths - B
    English Language - C
    Philosophy/Ethics/RE - C (already achieved)
    Computer Science - C/D
    Art - C/D
    Physics - C/D
    English Literature - D
    Geography - D
    Biology - D
    Chemistry - D/E

    If these are the grades that I will be given in August, what would the best thing be to do? Would I be able to do A-Levels or attend university? What sort of job will I be able to find? I filled in one or two A-Level application forms and was strongly advised to do a Level 3 BTEC equivalent instead. My dad and sister's school grades would be mostly A*/A under the current system, with my mum's grades being all B/C today.

    What sort of career are you interested in? Or what subjects would you take to A level if you continue to college?

    Well I kinda enjoy drawing, although clearly not the sort of stuff we were doing in Art. I'm looking into a BTEC course in IT.
