    Because of some personal issues, I had to drop out of school for 2 years and now I've found out that I'm too old (19) to re-join sixth form again.
    My plan is to be starting university from sep 2019.
    So, I have the option to give my exam either in May 2018 or 2019 (Economics, Maths and one more subject- want to go for a business management degree)
    But the problem is that I haven't started studying yet so 2018 may be a too short time to get good grades (aiming for A-A*)
    And if I give them in 2019, I don't understand how I will make a university application without any kind of predicted grades from a school etc.
    I'm also having a very hard time finding an A levels college near Croydon where there isn't high fees.

    I feel as if my future is completely falling apart as I had dreams to go to a very good university, but the 2 year break has torn it completely and I feel so lost without any guidance whatsoever :'(

    It would be best if I could give my exams in June 2019 as I'd have a much better chance of achieving the grades I'm aiming for.
    But I have no idea how my university application would go through without a predicted grade or As level (as exams would be linear now).
