    I'm in year 12, it's now May and I have mocks in two months- I take biology, chemistry and history. I've been predicted AAA but it seems impossible. Biology and history have a lot of content and I absolutely hate chemistry. I regret taking A-levels, especially with the new system with all exams taken after two years of study, which my subjects all fall into. Are there any alternative paths I can take to A level at this point? I'm not exactly certain of what I want to do with my life but I'm not even sure if I want to go to university. I'm so stressed!

    Now sure what you mean re 'alternative paths'? There are various alternative ways to get into university (link to thread in my signature), but none are easier than A levels. There are no alternative ways to getting A levels which don't involve exams I'm afraid. I don't think you should quit A levels. They are the important, not just for university but also for getting a job. You don't need to rush into uni if you're unsure about it but I don't see any point leaving school just to sit around at home.
