    Hello everyone,
    Firstly ill tell you a bit about myself.
    Im 19 years old and 2 years ago i got my as-level results for English Language (D), Maths (u), ICT (e) and geography (D). I have no idea why i picked these subjects but i did and its safe to say i failed massively. That year i didnt stick in and at the end I was lucky to get into an electrical apprenticeship for a nuclear firm. Im in my third year now, well starting September, and when I finish this apprenticeship ill be 20 but the catch is i dont want to do this as a job for the rest of my life.

    I need some advice, im going to be 20 and i need to do some as levels and a levels that will allow me to go on and do a university course. A huge interest of mine is game design, and i would love to do that but i have no idea where to start? Where can I do my alevels? What alevels should i do? Please help.

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

    Enjoy the site!

    Ollie, from the TSR community team
