When looking at the subjects/careers from the links in the previous reply, try to choose what you are passionate about, else it will be a long and boring study/career.

I don't say this to be harsh but if you are struggling with A-level subjects with no extenuating circumstances then further academic study might not be for you.

What are the reasons you want to go to university? It is expensive and increasingly doesnt guarantee a job on graduation.

You might be better off looking at apprenticeships or alternative routes to university

So why do you want to go to uni where you will have a lot more studying to do and be expected to do it independently?
Uni isnt like school, noone will chase you up for the work or ask why you haven't done it you will simply fail the module.

It's probably worth mentioning too that it is expensive to go to uni, let alone fail it.

I think you should just try an apprenticeship. Uni is not for everyone and you can still achieve all your goals without a degree!

The fact its so expensive will motivate me. Also the idea of a high paying job + cool degree too.

You aren't guaranteed a high paying job though - that's the whole point.
Most graduate jobs start at about 20-25k which is pretty average to low end. There's more and more graduates which saturates the market.
Yes some things do require a degree but it depends on what you want to do. A lot of things also accept HNDs or other qualifications.
Plumbers can make a fortune and the pathway to that is through NVQs or apprenticeships, not uni.
A cool job is what makes you happy, not what other people think of it.
