I just turned 20 and I’m so lost in life Ik I want a high paying career but that needs grades I can’t attain.I really struggle with studying because of my adhd it’s impossible.What can I do HELPpppp
I want to go to uni but my uni subject requires 3As


I feel like a bum staying home whilst my friends enjoy uni I’m wasting my life away and feel like I’ll end up in a job centre in the future at this rate

Is your ADHD controlled? That'd be the first step. Outside of that, it's likely you'd need to resit or get onto an access course - might need to compromise a bit on the level of university you apply to but there are routes open to you.
