    I'm 17, I have 0 GCSEs, I have Us in most of the exams I took including maths and English language, nothing at C or above, what do I do? I'm a complete failure, I feel like I'm going to work in McDonald's for the rest of my life and never have money or be happy, I hear about students in places like Oxford university, how they will end up rich, have amazing lives, some become millionaires and I wish I could be like that. You can't just retake either, I really want to work with animals.

    You need to get at least a C in English and Maths and your school should have made sure of that. You can resit those ones.

    Go to a local college and resit your English maths and science. Then sit an access to HE course in science which is equivalent to 3 A Levels. From there you can go into uni. If you don't have your grade c in eng and maths then a local college will fund you

    dude i’m ****ing 17 and got only 2 C’s gonna get a few more grades but most people who go to oxford don’t get rich. Lemme do you a favour and tell you to pick up a book and re invest in yourself learn about finance and what to do with your money. Be an entrepreneur which i’m planning even though i’ll be studying accountancy. Trust me just never give up and you’ll make it. Also take a look at real estate. You’ll never become a multi millionaire with just a Job such as a doctor because they get taxed 40-60%!!! be an entrepreneur and if your successful trust me you’ll be glad.
