I do (and will probably achieve fairly low grades in) R. E., Psychology and Religious Education at A2, and I hate each and every one of them. English Language is the most tolerable, though, and that's why I've applied to do Linguistics/English Language at university, but I'm thinking that if I don't get in I'm going to try for something else - something which can actually give me a job, I mean (and please don't try to persuade me that this course can.)
Buuut ... what else can I apply for with these A Levels, that doesn't have anything to do with these A Levels?
I'm thinking Midwifery, which at Manchester Uni counts Psychology as a science, buuut ...
Any other ideas?
I cannot suggest anything as you have not indicated any areas of interest

You're going to spend £9k/year to do an english course because it's the 'most tolerable'? I'd suggest taking a year out to seriously re-consider your options and maybe take some new A levels.

Midwifery is really competitive. Without a passion to do this and some experience in doing some sort of 'caring' you are unlikely to get in for this.
I would try and go and find out a lot more about the English course and try and decide if you really want to do this. Also look at other vocational qualifications maybe at college to see if any of these appeal.

Maybe you should do some research into careers that might interest you eg midwifery, nursing if you like that kind of thing and then apply to a foundation course where they will accept a range of different subjects and lower grades. And hopefully the foundation course will lead to a degree in that subject.

Useless a-levels eh?story of my LIFE.
I'm in a similar-ish ,WORSE-ish situation!If i don't work my ass of like mad this summer (9 exams inlc resits-.-) i will most likely end up with CCD, which i ended up with in this years jan examsI wna do childcare nursing at UoM(Uni of manc)or speech therapy.
Id say my passion lies more with childcare nursing due to the fact it covers more biology based topics HOWEVER ,i think id do better at speech therapy as im OK at english langauge((much better than biology).Coincidently iv all 3 of the preffered subjects for speech therapy (biol/psych/englang)so idk mann:/ what to doooo??
p.s please could someone let me know if UoM consider students who have taken 3 years to complete their alevels?thankyoooooooo
