    Hey all,

    As you can see from the title I desperately need advice of what do do with my life.
    I have taken both my AS and A2 levels but they are pretty darn low therefore a lot of the universities where I live entry requirements do not meet my grades and are higher.

    I have taken a year off right now to decide what to with my life and that has been pretty much pointless.

    I am now considering to re take my a levels but i'd rather not go back to my old sixth form, how would I go about that? Another possibility is that I study my a levels at home, which i too am also considering. There is of course apprenticeships which I am still considering BUT a lot of them are for a year and while the experience is great I would rather one which lasts a longer time.

    If anyone has any advice please do share because I am honestly stuck and have no idea what to do. (Yes I know i'm VERY indecisive but I honestly don't know how to go about life)

    Loool, sorry. Government and Politics is an E, English Literature is a C and Philosophy is a C I am not sure what to do in university but i am going back and forth between religious studies and creative writing, as for the universities i don't have a particular choice right now since it was Heythrop but they are not accepting undergraduate applications.

    Many Thanks

    What are your A levels? What did you get?
    What would you like to do at uni?
    Where would you ideally like to go to uni (top few perhaps)?
    It's very hard to offer help without knowing these things.
