    Hey,

    So today I got my AS Levels for my first year of college and I have know idea what the best option would be for the future.
    I got an A in English Language, B in Law but got a U in sociology.

    I have discussed with my college what the best options will be and they said a 3rd year might be the best option in which I can pick up another subject and hopefully fare better in.
    I'm just wondering if anyone out there has experience with a 3rd year or even resisting the AS alongside the A2 and what the best option would be.

    Do you not want to continue sociology? If you could bring it up, then you'd only need the one extra year, but otherwise 3 years in another option. It depends what you want to study at uni.

    Hi dandan1256

    If you think you can handle the extra workload, perhaps you could speak to your college about doing an A-level in one year so you won't need another year. I did an A level in A year, and it was ok

    However, lots of people do retakes and spend an extra year in college, and use the time to get better results. How would you feel about spending 3 years in college?

    As you did well in 2 A levels but not great in Sociology, is that because you didn't enjoy sociology? Sometimes it can be really hard to get a good grade if you don't enjoy your course so it might be worth thinking about dropping it for something you really enjoy.
