Hi There,

I am in a terrible dilemma. I work hard to use my free time effectively however my poor result has shown that it was all a waste. I had bad AS result Chemistry C, Biology E and PE E. Is there a chance that I can go ahead with A2 Level? This result is terrible to apply for Uni. I am at a crossroad. My sixth form says I should repeat year 12. I do not want to do so. I want to work extreme harder to improve my grades in A2.
I have read that some Unis may not accept a 3 year A level study.

I am also thinking to drop PE because I did not do it at GCSE. I am considering taking up Sociology because I did same at GCSE. The challenge here is that I have no AS record for Sociology. My aim is to Uni. Please advice how I can achieve this seemingly difficult decision making issue. Thank you

I was in a similar boat to you, and my advice would be to finish your A-Levels, take a gap year and apply in the next cycle, with relevant work experience to your course. Looking back, this is what I wish I had done

Check if the unis you want to apply for will accept you doing 3 years at A level and if they will then do the year again.
