    I got my results yesterday to find out I got an E in my Fine art and a D in my Graphics. These were my results for my last year in sixth from. I've decided to stop an extra year, except I don't know what to do and I don't want to go to University

    Start looking for apprenticeships, there are surely some you'll be interested in?

    If your interest is still in graphics and fine art then a btec or similar in these could be a good choice. You have more control over your grade because it's coursework assessed.

    Don't worry about uni for now, just do what interests you. You have one more year of free education to take advantage of so embrace it

    Hey uni is absolutely not the be all and end all, don't get me wrong I loved my time at uni but if I could do it again I would look at going straight into industry. Good Luck!

    You're only 18, relax, there are lots of options.

    You could do an apprenticeship, BTEC then go to uni or do a degree of your choice via the Open University.

    Good luck!

    Lol. Just an option.

    However, since the OP don't want to go to uni, you could do an apprenticeship or create a portfolio of work to show an employer.
