    Growing up, my entire life was circled around the performing arts and it was drilled into me, through my a-levels and then furthering my studies after. In AS I studied Dance, Theatre Studies and Fine Art (I also started studying French, but from pressure of the performing arts I was quick to drop the AS.) I continued with the next three subjects the following year. I then got into Northern School of Contemporary Dance School in Leeds, which was an incredible achievement but six months later I have dropped out. Dance is such a big passion of mine but it's not something I was to pursue as a career and furthermore the reason I didn't want to waste my time. Now having spent some time thinking about my future and having so much pressure from everyone around me, I really regret my A-Level choices, and I'm currently stuck with how I go around re-doing/starting from scratch? I really want to continue with my languages and maybe also a business degree alongside it? Any thoughts or help would be incredibly appreciated.

    I'm also 19 at the moment, turning 20 at the end of December, 2016.

    Look into whether you would be eligible for any business foundation years at university
