    I'm not too sure...I've only completed AS but If
    I've done badly then it means I will be kicked out
    of my 6th form and that I might just give up
    and try to fall asleep for a year.

    I'm trying to end mine after!

    Jk jk, but honestly, yes there is. Either by restarting college and sticking with A Levels or moving to BTEC, or even going into an apprenticeship. Don't give up all hope!

    Of course - You could go on an apprenticeship, do BTECs or see if another FE provider will let you carry on with A-Level studies (especially now that A-Levels are linear).

    I'm sure you did fine in your exams - Don't worry.

    It's okay! You will be fine. Try to negotiate with your teachers about keeping you in the sixth form and into yr 13. If that doesn't work then repeat the year okay

    Don't fret too much about it. I didn't get the grades I wanted at AS, but it's not the end of the world! You can move onto do A2 if your teachers think you're capable, alternatively you can ask to retake the year to improve your grades.

    It's important to note that A Levels aren't right for everyone - people have different learning styles, which might mean a BTEC or apprenticeship is a better route for you if you find your current route isn't working out for you. I know a lot of people who do A Levels are snobby and believe they're smarter than people who study in different ways, but this is a common misconception and is no way true. There's no shame in realising A Level isn't really compatible with how you learn best.
