    I'm a student at Uxbridge college and I just did my first year of A levels.
    I was very lazy this year and my attitude was that only mathematics counts this year so I will only try for that subject. I now know how stupid that was.
    My results were Chemistry: D Maths: B Physics: E
    Now my college is not letting me carry on in to A2 physics.
    I want to do chemical engineering and was aiming for unis requiring AAB-ABB. I am able but just very lazy and get very distracted very easily.
    Most universities ask for Chemistry and Maths and a third A Level.
    My physics teacher is the one who denied me.

    I have until Tuesday to re-enrol for my college.
    What are my options and the best way to get in to uni from my position?
    My college is saying to me to do 2 A2s and 1 AS but that sounds mediocre.

    Some options I thought of not in order of preference:
    I can do a BTEC and 2 A Levels.
    Do physics A2 privately but then I need tutoring.
    Do the 1 AS with 2 A2s and take a gap year and finish the AS.
    Do the 1 AS and 2 A2s and that's it.
    BTEC and 1 A Level.
    Give up on life? (just joking but I feel very de-motivated right now. I woke up at 10am and still haven't left my bed and it's almost 2pm).
    Anything else? (Apprenticeship?)

    My GCSEs are good enough to take any route possible.
    English: A
    Maths: A
    Physics: A
    Chemistry: B
    Biology: B
