So I've been thinking about studying ti be an architect for years now, and before I started 6th form I thought that I could easily get the grades required for university, however I'm halfway through year 13 now, and even though I've been revising the whole time, my grades are still really bad and the way my school goes about it is destroying my mental health quite a bit. I know I could just suck it up for another few months and get bad grades and apply for a foundation year but is there another way I could still study something to do with architecture without finishing my a levels?

Maths, art and physics. But I'm getting a D, B and a C in them respectively

Have you looked at other art and design qualification - like the UAL/BTEC Extended Diploma in art and design? If you can switch over to something like that ASAP then you would be able to apply to most architecture degrees (and it seems more likely something like that would suit you if your strongest subject at A level is Art). You could maybe even keep A level Art while starting the new course.
