    I've recently finished my first year at sixth form, but still don't have any idea of i want to do as a career. After taking Maths, Chemistry, Biology and English Language, (at AS) I ended up with 3 D's and 1 C (very disappointing). Although, technically I have passed everything and have gained entry into next year, I'm not sure whether I want to carry on. This is because I feel like I worked hard over the last year, and don't really have a lot to show for it. I also feel that if I carry on I wont be able to achieve the B overall A level grades I was hoping for with these low AS results pulling me down. I'm thinking about leaving sixth form and possibly going to college to do a course (not sure what? maybe a trade?). What do you guys think? any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated....


    Why not ask for a photocopy of your paper to see where you went wrong? That way you can resit (if you want to) and improve on your grades.
