    This time last year i was YR 12 / 6th year doing my as levels, but i dropped out before mid January due to anxiety and other reasons, i didn't have any difficulty with the work it was other things. Since dropping out in september i joined a training college SRC were i'm now doing NVQ Beauty Therpay, i don't have any interest in becoming a beauty therapist but i chose to do it because it seemed like an easy option at the time as i didn't know what else i wanted to do. Along with that i am doing my essential skills maths and english as i failed them on GCSE Foundation level last time.

    GCSE's i do have are
    Business Studies - B
    ICT - B
    Childcare - B
    Religion - B
    Occupational Studies - C
    BTEC Science - Pass

    I now know that i want to go to university and i have a few choices on what id like to do too. But since i dropped out i have no as / a levels so i was wondering what my best options would be, i would be open to doing my a levels again but not to going back to school, are there anyways to do a levels without school? or any other ways to get into uni without them?

    Sorry that this post is so long lol

    Open uni have any requirements iirc, but I think the best bet is just to try and do a few a levels and see where it goes from there imo.

    Open uni is your main option, otherwise look at an access course and getting your maths and English GCSEs.

    Maybe, if your reasons for dropping out were good and someone (eg. a doctor or teacher) could confirm that they were genuine. The uni course would almost certainly have to be in a field related to your current course though so if that's not what you want to do, in my opinion you certainly shouldn't devote three years and thousands of pounds to it
