    What course are you looking to do? If you don't want to do anymore exams you can do a level 3 BTEC qualification which mainly consists of course work and can still get you into uni.

    No, you can't get into uni at the age of 17 with only GCSEs under your belt. Do BTECs or something.

    (Bear in mind that uni will most probably have exams, and pretty serious ones at that)

    The exams don't magically stop after school, they keep going at uni and they're way more brutal than GCSE.....just try out sixth form because it's so much better than Year 10/11 and if you don't like it then you should consider other options outside of academic institutions
