    Hey all,

    I'm really worried about whether i should take a 3rd year at my college.

    I am currently in my second year of college (Year 13) and i got BCCD in my AS levels the year before. I am predicted a BBC this year.

    Due to medical reasons (severe stomach pains, which made me have surgery) i have missed most of this academic year so I won't obviously get the grades that i want at the end of the year.

    My tutor is pushing to go down to 2 A levels and just do them but how can i get into a half decent uni with 2 A levels ?!?!?!

    Anyways my most likely option is to take a 3rd year at my college, i only know 1 other person who is taking a 3rd year at my college as he has a different medical reason.

    Just wondering if this is a good idea for me to do? for both education purposes and social purposes. I am somewhat socially awkward person so would taking a 3rd year be a bad thing and will end up just being depressed as i am older than everyone in my class? and how will this affect my options at uni.

    Also any other suggestions at what i should do?

    Feel free to leave ANY advice!! really struggling here aha.
