    Hey, so i'm 17 next month but I am currently in the first year of A-Level Physics, A-Level Computer Science and A-Level ICT. This year, I have AS Physics and AS ICT exams. I feel as though I can pass ICT with a D/C which is all I need but I am really bad at physics and get E's (or sometimes even U's) on past papers. I have my AS Physics exam on Tuesday but I already know I will fail.

    So, if I fail Physics and I am not allowed to continue next year (because 2 A-Levels is not enough for full-time education), how can I apply for a new college if I only get the results in August? For example, lets say I get a U in August, but colleges start in September - how can I change college? And what would happen to my AS ICT result (lets say I get a C. Do I keep it?).

    Sorry for the big chunk of text.

    TL;DR - Get results in end of August but Colleges start in September. That's not enough time to change college? Will I be out of education for a whole year?

    This may depend on the college you are thinking of applying to. Maybe contact a few and explain your situation and see what they say?
