    If you have no inclination to repeat, do you have the motivation to do a completely different syllabus?

    Surely it would be much easier and less time consuming to just repeat your maths and biology modules.

    I don't want to..Id already repeated my as in hopes of bettering it, I should have taken physics chem math and eco to keep my options open, which is what I plan to do in the other syllabus..its much cheaper and easier as well.. :/ i guess it sounds like im a retard the point is that yeah now I will give it my all as things have gotten better. I really wanted to do eco once, but now Im not sure and wanna try engineering. Im 19

    Why don't you want to? Because you want to study different subjects? That's a perfectly valid reason. It seems that you've already made up your mind.

    What is it you want to do at uni? Would an access course be a better option?

    Some people just aren't meant for uni... If you struggled with A levels you will probably struggle with uni too.

    Any way you can retake maths and pick up an easy A like business.
    That A* in economics is great.
    Plenty of my mates repeated thier A2 year dont know if your college will let you.

    Then you will have economics A* maths B(lets say you get a B minimum) and a A/A* in business.

    It's a course for people without the necessary qualifications to study at university. Just google 'access course'.

    I didn't struggle with them as much as you think..I didnt bother to study it at all till it was too late. I was already stressed and devastated during that time..There's a difference..

    Inbetween A-Levels and Uni


    Usually adults trying to get into uni do this, it's just basically another route into Uni without doing A-Levels
