My a-level results are not that strong and i am looking at getting 2 C's in history and sociology and a B in business. i was wondering if their is any other opportunities i could do instead which require a-levels as i don't want them to of been a waste of time? Also is their any way of doing apprenticeships abroad? help would be much appreciated thankss

    You might like to look in Apprenticeships and alternatives to University . Your real options are traineeship, apprenticeship, job, volunteering or a course at college for something. What job/career are you interested in?
