    Hi fellow TSR members,

    I have a dilemma.

    I have lost all motivation in my forthcoming A2 exams.

    It feels as if I have been living on autopilot for the past two years, and getting rubbish grades in my a levels c/d

    Realised I am suited to be an entrepreneur, I love selling, and making money!

    Is it too late to quit a levels, as I have been getting itchy feet in regards to my business.ventures.

    I am a yr 13 student, and found my calling in life too late

    I am really sorry to hear this but you've probably just burned yourself out. I felt exactly the same way just before my summer yr 13 exams but just looked towards my goal and made it!

    I think that i would be a bad idea to quit now as you have invested 2 years into your Alevels and only have a month or two left.

    Its also better to have a couple of C's than no alevels at all (imo)

    But just keep on. Maybe try new revision methods (group revision would maybe help with motivation)

    Wih regards to becoming an entrepreneur, alevels wouldnt stop you from doing that and would surely even help(eg. Analytical/evaluation skills)

    Hope that helps

    I agree with the above poster.
    You've come this far you may as well finish them - after all A levels in C grades are better than no A levels. After you've completed them you could go into business then, but I wouldn't do so before. Plus I think it may look poorly on your CV - potential employers may see this as an inability to see things through which isn't what they would want in an employee.
    Keep going and do your best, and in two months time you can go after another project.
