    You should quit. It's obviously a step too far academically for you. Get a job.

    Maybe take the route of more hands on apprenticeships? What do you want to do after A levels? And career wise?

    See you do have a skill. That one is quite hard to pull off.

    Why not? There's apprenticeships for both of those and maybe you'll find you're good at them!
    Joining the police is quite competitive too but you could do voluntary work first and get some experience with them, or become a cadet or something and work your way up? I don't know the way into those professions properly - maybe research alternative ways into them?

    You can do BTEC Health and Social Care level 3 or some other BTECs (there's ones in mechanical engineering, in everything) but my friend is doing it and she's got offers to study Education at university with aims of becoming a primary school teacher too

    I know another girl doing a BTEC in her class who's got an offer from Surrey and is gonna go do Law there... like A-levels aren't everything

    Please don't feel like you're grades are terrible, everyone's AS year goes differently. I'm in my AS year and find it tough but if it is not what you want then leave. If it is what you want but your struggling, talk to a teacher or work out a way to revise and understand your subjects. Have you done your AS mocks? I'm sure they weren't that bad.

    I got two Ds, and it's totally normal. Don't read up threads about everyone getting A*s on here for mocks, you can't even achieve that for AS. What subjects are you taking? Don't give up.

    You've come through all this way and went through approximately 13 - 14 years of education for you to want to quit now?? comee onnnn!! With hardship in anything if you work your butt off there will be ease in the end. Let your mock results motivate you into putting everything that you have into the next coupla months. A levels are the hardest two years you will face so dont be afraid to fall back at times but instead pick ur self up and keep running. You can do it fam i believe in you

    Respected subjects and also hard, it's understandable. If you want a chat, I'm happy to talk.

    Don't let your mock grades get you down. I've known many people who got E's and U's in their mocks and used the disappointment to realize they'd have to work much harder than they expected and ended up with some pretty amazing grades. I'd suggest you give it your all this year and use this setback as motivation to work hard for the real exams, but if you honestly don't think A level is for you then look at alternatives such as BTECs and apprenticeships.
