    Heyy ,
    I picked A level subjects that really wasn't suited to me . I orginally was doing Chemistry , Mathematics,Biology and History . I failed my mock in Biology so I was kicked off that and I was told I should drop Chemistry which I did so . I am now doing Mathematics , Geology and History . I failed my mock in maths and was given the choice of doing AS Maths over two years (sitting in the same lessons for 2 years and taking the exams in the last year) or dropping it . I chose to carry on .
    However , this leads me to be greatly disadvantaged when applying to uni as I will only have 2 full A Levels. So I am thinking about doing the AS levels in Geology and History and then starting a fresh in College in September . I am thinking of doing Appiled Science , Government and Politics , Photography and Mathematics.

    My mock grades were Geology:A and History:C .

    What do you guys think?

    Your sixthform sounds very strict :eek: - at mine failing mocks is pretty standard because nobody takes them seriously or revises. Taking only 2 A Levels and having your choice restricted sounds like a pretty rubbish situation to me, I think starting somewhere else at September sounds like a good idea.

    The thing is my parents don't want me to start again in September and are pretty angry at me for applying for college in September .
    So I really don't know what to do .

    Do what you think is best for you. It's your life.

    If you think College is the way to go, your parents will get over it.
