    Can anyone help?

    Im currently in my first year at college studying AS. I messed up my Gcse first time and then passed the retakes. I am now 18 and should be in A2 but because I failed my Gcse first time I had to miss a year. Im finding the A levels difficult and would like some advice as I still want to go Uni.

    Shall I do an apprenticeship or start a Btec level 3?, I want to go Uni September 2019 but will I be able to complete a 2 year Btec course in one year?

    Thanks.

    If you're already finding studying difficult then it would be a terrible idea to attempt a 2 year course in 1 year. You failed GCSEs, you're struggling with AS and want to drop out - you're not exactly the kind of student who can just fly through work easily. That's not intended to discourage you from going to uni, but you need to be more realistic about your route there.
