    I did my AS year for the first time in 2015 and failed horribly because of not focusing at all, I was too busy making friends for the first time. Second year i did both AS and A2 (maths physics and bio) privately ...it was too much....got three Us...this is the third time doing both AS and A2 and despite working so hard I m pretty sure I will get three Us because i couldnt do many past papers , i had to study the book and teach myself. I really want to study physics, i was thinking i could go into a foundation degree for physics where i dont have to focus on biology just physics and maths and my basics will be strong.i have decent GCSEs. can anyone help by telling about if i can get into a foundation degree anywhere decent?? plus I will apply through UCAS as an international candidate. PLEASE HELP ME there is nothing i can study but physics...i really dont care how long it takes i just want to study physics. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.

    Sorry you will need some sort of qualifications AFTER GCSE for uni, my advice is go to a bunch of colleges (where they accept 18+, unfortunately it will probably be the worst in your area) and do bio, physics and chem if maths too hard. Or do summat essay based like History. I also advise Psychology it links in great with sciences although it can get boring. If you can get above grade C's in a year time just search for all physics courses, this being foundation/normal etc. Check if you meet any widening access criteria as well as could be useful. But at the moment focus on doing either a levels again and smashing them like I know you can because of your GCSES's or you never know BTEC science could be the solution for you. Look through the spec If you completely don't understand any of it at all after the resits then just swallow some pride and do btec to get in to what you want which is physics. BUT check if you need an additional A level to do it at uni like A level Physics which should be good as your motivated enough to do it.
