    Thats wierd, in my sixth form me and other smarter people were'nt getting straight As
    It's admittedly uncommon, but it is present.

    If you really study hard and revise most days you should surely be able to raise your grades to at least a C or even D. I don't think you should give up hope because of mocks this early- most people at my SF did pretty bad on the mocks but improvement is always possible. Analyse what you did wrong and therefore what you need to revise.

    This retail job may not have the security you will need in a job after SF, and not having any A-levels will put you on the back foot when applying for any job in the future. Plus, telling an employer you dropped out of SF will not give them great confidence in hiring you.

    So, yeah, stick with it and just work hard to improve and reach your potential.
