    So I took Biology, Chemistry, Physics and maths at AS level and completely messed them all up, so much that I got DEUU. Yeah, terrible right?

    I chose the subjects having no idea in what I wanted to do, I ended up really hating physics and chemistry thus putting a lot of stress on college life and I basically just set myself up for failure even before starting my exams. I know I can do so much better than that which is the painful thing.

    After picking up art again in my free time, and doing some thinking, researching, I would love to go into architecture. I want to retake year 12 and switch up my a levels. I'll continue with the A2 biology, completing that in year 13. And then i want to retake the whole year of maths, and I want to pic up English literature and Fine Art. Those I will finish in 'year 14'.

    So say even if I came out after 3 years at college with some good grades and drastic improvement (e.g. AAAA-BBBB) in Maths, Biology, English Lit and Fine Art, would I get frowned upon by good universities for doing 3 years at college? I'm talking about doing architecture at like Bath, UCL, etc.

    Thank you!
