    Haven't used this app for a couple of months now but want to see how people are getting on with a levels? I really enjoy acting and was always unsure about whether to pick a levels nearby or a drama school? I chose a levels as I think it broadens my horizons more but now idk if I regret it half way through because I am struggling to stay focused in lessons & i feel bottom of the class! Do I follow my acting dream or pursue a levels? P.S I don't do drama a level and they don't offer it😬

    Have you considered joining a local drama class or an amateur theatre group? Since you like acting it might be worthwhile.

    You sound like me when I first started AS and here I am regretting the choices I made and having to switch to new subjects. I'd say you could go into writing?

    I do script writing on the side, used to be my ambition but sort of lost the love for it. Ah I do English Literature and Language as separate subjects, prefer Language any day to be honest. I'm sure in Media you may write a script or come up with a film idea? Then you can build up a portfolio and maybe enter a script writing competition or use the BBC Writersroom

    Won't lie, I'm going through that now but what you need to do is work out how behind you are, how easy or hard it will be to catch up and figure out what work you need to prioritise.
