    May be A-Levels are not for you.

    Why not do A Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in 1 thing you enjoy? available at many colleges!

    It can still get you to Uni.
    I want to do BBA

    I dont think you should be taking A levels at all if you cant handle maths at a level. Courses like accounting and business studies are already both soft subjects and they're only useful if you take it with maths a level.

    somehow I am good at Accounting tbh, but I forget steps of Maths. But not the maths of Accounting
    The first an interviewer will ask you in Accounting is if you have Maths A-Level. If you are struggling, just revise and practise every day using ExamSolutions. Everyone finds maths hard, you just need to practise.

    That's the reason I am afraid of, I got 'D' in IGCSE and I am repeating it.
    Do another subject that isn't maths but is still respected by univeristies:
    Something out of:
    [*]English Literature[*]Physics[*]Biology[*]Chemistry[*]Geography[*]History[*]Languages (for example Spanish or French)


    These are subjects that universities are looking for!

    This is a very good point. I know several people who got into university with a BTEC. Enjoyed it much more than A levels, too. A levels really aren't for everyone!
    Yeah

    I guess. Do you want to do accounting in the future?
    You can get into the top 4 firms with any 3 A-levels, if you choose to do an apprenticeship.
