    I'm currently taking my as levels in film studies, sociology and English literature, my exams start in 2 days. I am struggling a lot! I have revised as much as I can but unfortunately nothing has stuck, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to fail. I also really hate a levels, I find them uninteresting and not for me at all, I am very interested in fashion and makeup, and I have found an access course at a college that allows me to study theatrical makeup, and then leads on to a university course, I can either drop my a levels and take this access course that will give me the 200 ucas points I need to study theatrical makeup at university, or keep doing my alevels and get the ucas points that way? I don't know what to do I suffer with depression and I feel like I need to do what makes me happy, and I feel that the access course will interest me, however I'm worried that in the long run I will regret not going onto A2. My predicted grades are not great either, BCC
