    I'm currently doing A-Levels and it's not going great! Philosophy and Ethics, I'm achieving C-A! However Business, I'm achieving U-D and Biology, U-E! What are my options, because I think it's clear A-Levels aren't for me! However, I don't know if I want to commit to an apprenticeship.... :/

    You could do a BTEC Level 3 extended in a certain subject? If you know what specifically you want to go into this would be great, 94% of universities accept them including some Russell groups. They have a variety to choose from and are equivalent to 3 a levels so you could also do philosophy and ethics on the side! They're a two year course but how it works is you get 1 and a half a levels from it in first year and another 1 and a half in second year. BTEC tends to have quite a pretty negative stigma but its becoming a lot more common due to a levels not being for everyone, BTEC is all coursework so throughout the work you do in the year you roughly know what your end of year result will be, the criterias different as it works as distinction, merit and pass, if you get all distinctions in the two years is equates to 420 UCAS points which is 3A* at A level. Goodluck in making your decision

    Cheers for the advice but I've decided to curl up in a corner and see what happens If I do badly, I'll then make a decision, I find that my biggest problem is I'm a lazy C**t! And yet I still do nothing about it
