Yeah I meant what were your GCSE grades and what motivated you to achieve the grades you did at GCSE?

I'm motivating you by asking questions to make you think.

Either turn things around quickly or look into jobs/apprenticeships.

Google Oxford Colleges and then a McDonalds Bathroom. If you have eyes, you should be able to notice the difference

I suspect this is the reason for your lack of motivation, first of all you need to believe in yourself, YOU CAN DO IT! Secondly, you need something to aspire to more importantly. If you've nothing to aspire to you, of course you'll lack motivation. Lets start thinking what YOU want to get in life! What do you enjoy? Any thoughts?

It does make sense. I was implying that if they left with failing or really poor A levels, their employment prospects would be extremely limited. I used the McDonalds example as an extreme. Please just stop.

That's not necessarily true though. A levels are not the only route to good employment prospects. Your McDonald's example implied that OP is stupid, which was unhelpful. It also implied that McDonald's workers are thick too, which was also uncalled for.

Are you enjoying the subjects you're doing? If not, then maybe redo the year with better suited A level choices. If you are, you'll need to revise more, set aside time to focus on your studies and generally put in more effort in your work. A levels aren't for everyone, so if you still find yourself struggling, perhaps look into a BTEC or an apprenticeship.
