    I left school at 15/16 with no GCSE's and I haven't done too badly for myself

    I can't do A levels, can't go to Uni, failed GCSEs only passed 3.

    Now what am I supposed to do? I have no idea what to do next...
    Please advise what's best to do now I'm so sad and confused
    A levels isn't the only way to get to uni. You can do a level 3 BTEC. If you don't have GCSE maths and English grade C and above then you'll have to do a lot level 2 BTEC first. Go to the college you want to study at. They are enrolling now. Good luck

    I have GCSE maths (B), GCSE chemistry (B) and GCSE physics (C). In English Language I was only one UMS from a C and emailed my school to ask if it was possible to get a remark. I will be going to another sixth form soon and do you think I can manage to persuade them to allow me to take the A levels with these GCSEs? I know that I'm capable and these results don't reflect my ability. I even did so much better in my mock exams.

    They should give you a place with those grades but they might ask you to do an assessment in English and Maths first. If they do then, you'll have to pass the assessment to get a place. If you don't get onto A levels, don't worry there are other level 3 courses you can do to get into university.

    Some of the most famous, talented people in the world did poorly in their GCSE's and didn't go to uni.

    Your life is not ruined.
    False hope.
