Doing my A Levels for the seventh time AMA Watch
Thanks! I prefer audio as I absorb information through my ears quite easily and I find Maths the easiest and History the hardest as I'm not the best at essay writing which suggests to me like I shouldn't study it.
Why haven't you considered other options?
why do you need the A levels?
Perhaps the subjects you're picking aren't for you?
If I do that, I've been told to wait a few years as I'm still a bit too young too apparently as most of the students in the courses tend to be older as I've been told.
"I've been told" is such a dangerous phrase and you've been burned to the point you're redoing A Levels every summer like a recurring nightmare.
You should take the effort to research Access now. You're on this site for experienced help from similar people, and here is your help. You can look at the mature student forum and ask about it there too.
Save your money and time don’t bother with uni it’s a scam, I’m in my first year and the teachings are trash they just teach you to be a robot and a 9-5 rat save your money and start an online business
FR though, sure, you can say uni is a scam but employers in Stem related and high paying fields look for academically minded people, a degree is a reflection of that.
each year what have your results actually been?
Taking time out of the grind to get a boost before getting back on the hamster wheel going nowhere.
I was predicted an A*A*A but got a BCC due to personal reasons
I am in Year 13 doing my final year of A Levels. I have recently done my Feb' mocks and got DEE (Geography, Media, Business). I feel like I am a disappointment to people with these grades... I have got all 5 of my offers back for University, with my 2 favourites being Plymouth and Derby. The course I have chosen to do is Economics as I have really enjoyed doing this in a section in A Level business but its with a foundation year, as with all the Uni's I have chosen are. I only need 32-60 UCAS points to get to Plymouth (EE) but I just feel like im a failure... Am I a failure? I feel like I am as in my GCSE's I got the grades: 8 DT, 6 French, 5 Maths, 5 Phy/Chem/Bio, 4 English, 5 Geog', 3 History... Would be nice to hear back from people. Thanks!
Adult work life is absolutely nothing like school or exams.
It's always funny seeing your sage professor, probably complete with beard and thick glasses, with a PhD and a long list of letters who knows crazy stuff about mechanics or sub-atomic particles, stopping for a moment to try to remember a GCSE-level rule or law or asking what 6 x 6 is. Exams test our memory, real life doesn't (we just ask a colleague or Google it.)
You can get all Fs, you'll be fine. You can always try again whenever you want.
