    Right A2 exams are here and its clear i am going to fail. I messed up going to 6th Form as i didnt know what i wanted to do, taking Film studies, Geography, Biology and Literature but after realizing what i wanted to do (Microbiology) i became quite depressed and gave up. I shot myself in the foot and i am going to fail. I want to go back to college to try again and do a level 3 diploma in Biology but i am worried its to late and i will just end up with smashed dreams and failed A levels. Can anyone give me advice i really need some right now...

    What is it that you want to do now? If it's something Biology related, seeing as you wanted a biology diploma, maybe you could retake the A-level next year? If you've only done 2 years of A levels, you're entitled to do one more year free

    I would say speak to your head of sixth form or somebody at your school and see how they can rearrange year 14
