    Do a foundation course. it takes you one year and universities recognise it as an A-Level or International Baccalaureate equivalent. Might be better than retaking your AS Levels. See more here: www.ufp.uk.com

    Apprenticeship maybe? Depends on what you want to do? What job do you want to do?

    yeah, i did a foundation course with a university too, they took me in after that

    Depends on what you want from life. Did you fail all your *a levels? Do you want to go on studying? If so then you can either re take your a levels, or do a foundation course. If you are done with studying then do an apprenticeship or just get a job and work your way up. Those are your main options.*
