    Im worried that I'm going to fail my AS levels... so far from my January modules I received a B and a D... For Summer I need to achieve 3 C's atleast to get back into my sixth form...
    My GCSE results were as follows: 1 A*, 8A's, B, C.

    What careers or apprenticeships would I be able to get into from my GCSE results and my AS results?
    I'm worried I won't get into Uni, as i may not even get back into my sixth form...

    What would you do in my position? I currently study Maths, Biology, Chemistry and History...

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated...

    Hey man, don't worry about the grades - I got a B and a D in my AS January exams too! Just retake them in the summer and make sure you revise hard - I did and I got ABBDE (now AABDE).

    Most people under perform in their AS Janurary exams as they aren't used to the step-up from GCSE, so don't worry about it too much and if the worst comes to the worst, just re-sit your first year of sixth form again

    There are plenty of good jobs you can get without achieving your As. But it just mean that it would be a bit of struggle to get promotion, and that's where your work experience fill the gap. You just have to get work experience first before getting on the ladder of success, whereas by having good education skip couple of long step which ultimately can save you couple of years.

    Dont worry about not getting a good job.
    If you put in enough revision in the summer, you will be fine. You might not have got the grades you hoped in the january exams, but thats kind of to be expected, as theres a bit step up from GCSE. Pus the B is quite a god grade.
    Even if you dont get the grades and dont get to stay on in 6th form next year, there are still plenty of options. You can get an apprentiship. They only usually require GCSE's, and there are plenty of apprentiships around in different career areas. You can also go to college- to do an NVQ, btec, Diploma etc in whatever career area you want. And you can also go to uni from those courses if you wish as well.
