    Hey, I'm an a2 student studying philosophy sociology and English lang+lit
    my exams are all linear apart from philosophy which means that I will have to retake the AS exams the same time as the A2 exams which is really hard already as it is for philosophy though, I achieved an E I know I flopped bad but I m going to have to retake a unit to bring my overall grade up, not to mention I am retaking GCSE maths and this is the final time I can retake it because from next year the government are changing the rules ... I have become very depressed that I barely eat just about manage to wake up to go to college i procrastinate so much that I don't even do any work and I know in order to get the grades I want I need to work hard however I just feel so hopeless knowing that I failed so badly I am contemplating whether to go to university as I feel that I am not in the correct mind set or mental state at this point In my life, I believe if I do go to university my depression will worsen so I am considering a gap year
    can anyone please offer advise?
