I just know that my anxiety will flare up and i'll most likely throw up (it's uncontrollable) or cry.
I'm okay with one or two of my subjects. Well, only one I'm strongly good at.
I'm not sure what to do. I'm not going to uni this year due to the fact I'm not ready whatsoever to leave home and I've only just got better with my mental health from years back it's been a struggle.
Would it be a good idea to re-study for two years or start over in a college?
I feel so embarrassed and I feel too thick if anyone knows about this. I'm just not very good with exams.

contact your GP and talk to them about your exam anxiety and stress. I take beta blocker medication for exam stress (basically it gets rid of the physical elements of stress like shaking and mental blocks due to adrenaline rushes) and it works wonders so try asking for those.

Education isn't everything
Grades aren't everything
Uni isn't everything
You'll be fine

If you fail it can actually be a good thing. Failing would (fairly) definitively prove that higher education isn’t for you and then you could go onto apprenticeships or vocational options without the irritating feeling of ‘is university the better option’ in the back of your mind.

Of course, failing is bad, especially for mental health. However, we know that you can open other opportunities.

If it allows you reconsider your options and find a better path for you such as an apprenticeship or a college course then it can be a far better option than attending university getting into thousands of pounds of debt, struggling and having a miserable experience.
