    Hey, so I did my AS levels a couple of months ago, gaining my results around 2 months ago, coming out with a B for English Literature, C for Media Studies, and D for Psychology. This, obviously, isn't exactly the best results and since I realised AS levels aren't really my thing, I need help with what I can do now.

    Re-sitting the year isn't an option for me, neither is continuing to the next. I've thought about doing a BTEC, though the coursework isn't something I like. I'm trying to apply for multiple apprenticeships, both on QA and WhiteHat, however they haven't exactly given me any opportunity in the fields I want to do, neither are they offering at least a Level 3 course.

    I need help weighing in my options. I haven't told my parents yet, since they're more traditionalists who don't exactly understand the other options I have, though my dad has given me till the end of this month about it. I've heard things about Internships? But apparently that's after A Levels, not AS. Is there anything I can do? Any help would be much obliged, but re-sitting or continuing the year would be my absolute last resort.

    How have you gotten to October and still not made a decision? What are you doing now?

    I have made a decision to do an apprenticeship, however for the past 2 months of actually searching forone and gaining interviews, all of which went positive, I haven't been hired. So I'm currently trying to weigh in the rest of my options.
