    Im doing third years in sixth form , failing the first year and taken new AS subjects( graphics , English lit A2 and ict) in the second year which I have done. Now I'm about to start my third year ( technically my 2nd again) but after doing 2 years which I have been depressed and so overloaded with work. I just think college would be better as now I know I want to go into photography and in some cases graphics and I won't be overloaded with work and I can just focus on one thing. Also I'll be able to still get into university (still undecided but the qualifications will be there )to do graphics or photography. So should I finish the last year of sixthform or do 2 years in college getting a level 3 extended diploma in the thing I like and get to know more about as I want to get jobs and more experience. If I finish sixthform this time next year I don't think I still want to go to uni and I will still want to be doing photography. I'm worried of making the

    It seems like in your heart of hearts you already know what the best option is best for you. Don't worry about failing, I failed one of my A level subjects but then took on a different one for the next year and it worked out better for me. I also failed one of my 2nd year univerisity modules last year and had to resit it this year which means I will be having a extra year at uni, but its turned out to be for the better!

    Things happen for a reason and things have a funny way of working out. You'll be fine, if you are still unsure maybe tyr and list the pros/cons of each choice you have and then that will give you a rational outlook on it. But In your heart you know whats best, you just have to listen closely xx

    it is true i think with A-levels especially people always think its all or noting when in reality you can just retake stuff endlessly and most unis aren't too fussed either ahah
