I left sixth form/college ten years ago. Done A levels, BTECs and NVQs.
I am posting this because I want yous to know that if A levels aren't for you then there is loads of other cool stuff you can do to get into uni/work. I don't know where you'd stand with stuff like Oxbridge or medicine but I do know someone who got into MMU for law with an NVQ level 3 in Nail Services.
When you're at school, anything that is not an A level is sold to you as something that is inferior and to be avoided if possible. In reality, this is simply not the case.
So if you have got your A level results today and are questioning whether A levels are for you then it's definitely not game over and you do have options. Whether that be a mix of A levels and vocational courses (some colleges can accommodate this, others not so much) or a whole BTEC.
Non A level courses often give you an employable skill, are coursework assessed and don't penalise you for not jumping through memory test orientated hoops.
The debate of A level vs BTEC is old. The point of this post is to say that from experience, I can say that if A level is not for you then it's gonna be ok.
BTEC is a good choice.
