    A Level choices :
    health and social care

    my school doesn't offer biology , chemistry , physics or math so I have no idea what to do. Should I drop out of school and take a gap year and then study the a levels I want to do at a collage or should I finish this year and cash my choices in as AS's. Is it really worth staying on this year if I know I'm not going to be needing any of my choices ?

    I'm so sorry for any errors in this I've been awake for over 27 hours.

    Check if you are eligible for any medicine foundation courses as it's not your fault your school doesn't offer sciences- it needs to be a pretty disadvantaged school in a specific area. Look up more details and which unis offer this.
    Honestly, with maths and science as your weakest subjects at gcse I would reconsider if you would want to commit to a career that is quite heavily based on science. I'm not sure that you could take science a levels and do well in them with Cs at gcse and most medicine courses want at least a B in maths. But not all do, so just do some research.
    I'd carry on with your a levels at the moment. You chose them for a reason and might decide you want to apply to a different course instead.
    Why didn't you go to a college that offers science a-levels?

    Good luck :-) get some sleep
