    Basically last year i failed my AS maths chemistry and physics and ended up with 3 Ds and was really disappointed. This year i took my AS and my A2 exams amd failed again! Ended up with D in maths, E in chemistry and U in physics. I knew i failed physics but maths and chemistry was the biggest shocking disappointment.i have been in college for 3 years and now i dont know what to do because i really wanted to go to university this year but now its looks like its not happening. I need some advices on what to do and if i should take a gap year to privately take the exams again.

    What do you want to do at Uni?

    Try and find a college course relating to that and work your ass off for dem UCAS points on that course.

    Take a gap year, look at apprenticeships, if you feel confident at having another go - then do it at a private centre. The cost burden will be on you. At least try some different subjects at college and get some UCAS points down?

    How have you been in college for three years if you failed AS last year, did you retake AS twice? I think it would be best if you do btec applied science easiest option and can still get you to uni, i do that and I applied to do computer science

    What are you going to change so that you stand a chance of passing 3 increasingly difficult years of university education, when at the moment you can't pass school education? You may want to go to university, but seriously, if you can;t pass A levels after two attempts, something very significant is going to have to change in your learning style to get through A levels or equivalent a third time, and then three years of increasingly difficult higher education.

    You would do well not just to consider alternative ways of entering university, but alternatives to university. Look at apprenticeships, or jobs. Think about more education when you've got a few years of professional experience under your belt, and maybe a different level of maturity and determination.

    Did you take AS and A2 together at the same time? Maybe think of alternative similar subjects? Or an apprenticeship?
