    No, but failing to get A-levels for 3 years is pretty ... retarded, isn't it?
    Not everyone's suited for school and exams etc! It doesn't make them "retarded", they may have strengths in other fields. A lot of successful people don't have A Levels, although useful they aren't vital. You can make it in the world without 'em. :rolleyes:

    Really horrible to see people telling OP they've screwed up their life. At least he/she has gone to the effort of trying to do something about it by asking for advice. Not getting A Level's is NOT the end of the world.

    I'm not a big fan of the phrase "life's too short", but I think it definitely applies here. You've spent such a long time working towards goals that you're consistently not reaching, I'd find that in itself demotivating to the point where I didn't even want to be trying to achieve anymore; so good for you for actually wanting to get this sorted! I think what you've done with prioritizing your subjects is a good idea, I hope it works out for you. Personally, If I were you and I didn't get the grades this time around, I'd look around for other things to do. A Level's aren't for you? That's fine. Find something that is.

    Good luck though, where there's a will there's a way .
