i got downgraded in my gcses and got into a college that doesn't teach my priority subject (maths) very well. i went from an a to a c this year and we definitely won't finish all of that content.
that along with doing subjects that i didn't really like is taking a toll on me. i do maths, bio and chemistry but i'm planning on doing maths, chemistry, art and physics at a different college.
would this change impact my entry into university ?

It depends what you want to do but redoing yr 12 will be much easier the second time through as you done the stuff but a bit boring I guess. College/BTEC is also an option if you know exactly what you want to do for your life. Don’t feel shamed in repeating but it is a whole year and something you need to discuss and a C is still a pass.

i don't recommend doing 4 a levels, especially if one of them is very coursework heavy and time consuming like art. if you're not happy where you're currently studying then nothing wrong with moving to a different institution and retaking the year. what are you thinking of doing after a-levels?

Personally I would not recommend doing 4 a levels also as it is very time consuming and would drain your energy. However, you could do 4 a levels temporarily and drop one subject you find the most difficult or boring. A fresh start in a new institution is not a bad idea but having to leave your friends as they enter the year above you can be quite upsetting.
