    I've messed up pretty badly here and I don't know if there's anything I can do.

    When I first picked my AS levels I chose maths, further maths and physics. My school was really not very good and I decided that I would restart my AS levels the following year at a different school. I ended up failing all three, but it didn't matter because I was restarting.

    I moved to a different school and am now studying Philosophy, Politics and Sociology. I've since realised that I want nothing more in life than to be a scientist, and that I've made a terrible mistake. I'm already a year behind having restarted once, and I don't know what I can do if anything.

    Any suggestions?

    You're allowed to change your mind. So don't beat yourself up because it took you a bit more to time figure out what you wanted.
