    At GCSE, I achieved B's and C's in English, Maths and Science, as well as Textiles, Business, RE and Citizenship. I've just started sixth form and have took English Literature, Health and Social Care Double Award and Psychology.

    Basically, h&s really comes easy, i wish i hadnt taken it and my dad keeps telling me that all my career options will be umbrella'd by the health and social care sector now, and i dont have a lot of other options. I dont really know why i took it to be honest, and after 9 weeks, i cant change it now.

    Could i possibly still go into business afterwards even though i didnt take it at A Level? Could i do a degree in an aspect of it or?
    What other careers could i go into?
    Thanks for any advice!

    Your a-level choices aren't finalised. If you drop health and social care a year early (or even complete the course) you can still pick up some a-levels. It might mean you're a year older than the majority of the students and you'll be an extra year (AS) or two (A2) away from Uni/work but I think some a-levels would outweigh those factors.

    I know at college, the majority of my class are older than me (16). A few have already been to university, graduated but decided it wasn't the degree for them so they've returned to do a-levels to enable them to do a different degree. So it's never too late.
