I recently got my AS results and they weren't particularly good (E in chemistry, D in maths and a C in biology) so now i'm rethinking what i might do next year.
One of the options is to re-do the first year (and perhaps at a different college for a fresh start) with the same A levels. It would definitely mean that I would have a head start in a way in comparison to other students and i wouldn't feel like i was playing catch up in the second year of A levels. Also A levels will leave more doors open further down the line. But, on the other hand I didn't really find the subjects i was studying to be interesting/exciting and the past year has been quite stressful. Sometimes it feels like i'm hitting my head against a brick wall because i have been trying so hard in the subjects and not getting anywhere. I did well in my Gcses (all A's and A*'S) but that was only through lots of hard work. A levels feel like a big step up and I don't think i have the right personality to do them and i don't think i'm naturally academic as i have to put 10 times the amount of effort to do something that someone else can do just like that.
Another option is to do completely different A levels but then again i'm a little fed up with the whole structure of the A level courses.
I was also just thinking about doing a vocational course like animal management or horticulture or an apprenticeship. Anything outside the classroom and with lots of hands on practical work i would love to do.
Could anyone give me some advice on what to do next it would be great to hear another point of view
What shall i do?
