I don't think I did well this year(AS level) as I couldn't cope with the significant change from GCSE to A-level.
I wish I could retake but next year they are reforming A-levels and I don't think I can cope with doing all my exams at the end of the year.
Anyone have any advice on what I should do?
Should I retake next year anyway? And if I do, and I retake some of the same subjects, would there be significant changes to what I would need to learn for my exams?

Next year is the last year for re-sits so you will be able to re-sit if you want. Wait till results day though, you might do a lot better than you thought.

Next year will be the first year to start linear exams (although our school does linear exams with AS and A2 = many many exams this year), but AS levels will still be a possibility, they will not help meet offers for those starting next year but they can still be sat.

Life usually works itself out. I do not think I have done that well in AS, and sometimes I have this rising moments of panic, but then I just remember how lucky I am already and how everything will work out

I don't think my sixth form is letting us re-sit our AS level, instead going straight in with the new changes.
How are you feeling with linear examination? Do you think it's harder than modular?

I also think like that sometimes too, I have many great things and people in my life that's why I don't want to disappoint them if I can't finish A levels and go university 😔

I think most parents would be proud of their kids as long as they are working hard at something which they enjoy. I don't think university is the be all and end all of that, as there are loads of people who have succeeded without it.

If you are really set on university, you could maybe do a third year at college. Or maybe work really hard to achieve decent A2 grades and then look to apply the following year or find a place during clearing.
