    I'm currently in year 12, and I'm rather worried that I've done quite poorly in my AS exams (maths, biology, geography and psychology). I haven't got any interests and have never partook in any extracurricular activities.

    I'm considering aiming towards studying philosophy at university, but I'm just wondering if I'd actually be able to? I doubt I'll get above BCC at A-level, plus my lack of hobbies and work experience is holding me back a fair bit. As well as this, I'm a really anxious person and hate social situations so I'm not even sure if I'd be able to cope with uni.
    Plus there's the fact that I don't know anything about philosophy :/

    Just general advice will be greatly appreciated, tah.

    You should borrow some philosophy books from a library to see if you're actually interested in it, as well as looking at philosophy and theology articles online. As for your results, there's no point speculating as you'll just worry more; wait until you get them before signing yourself off from doing anything.
