Right i got 2 options that could lead me to university(i already done one year)

1. Continue on to A2 level chemistry/physics/and computing
but i hate chemistry

this could lead me to a universtiy which is not all that special such as salford uni or sheffield hallam uni or even huddersfeild uni then i can do computer science as a degree or software engineering.

OR

2. I could stay in college for an extra year(3 year in total) so i leave college at 19 yrs old
and do maths/physics/computing/and a another AS level on my third year

so ill get alot of points and i can do maths and could open lots of options for me and also i can go to a good uni such as manchester universtiy and do computer science or something physics related.

what is the best option?

p.s. if i choose option 1 i can go salford uni and foundation course in computer science and move onto degree in that with 160 points(Very low points)
or choose computer science degree staright away but i need 240 points for that

option 2 = exams spread out over 2 years instead of 1 and can do good courses in better universitys

Do an extra year sounds like the best plan to me. Quite a few of my friends did and are much happier with better A-levels and at the uni they wanted rather than the crappy options they had previously.

Plus it's an extra year to make up your mind what you want to do, and earn money so you can live comfortably in that first year of uni.

All I got out of that was "Blah blah blah".
It's really up to you what you want to do.

Just as a word of warning, staying on an extra year isn't always that great an option, it may give you more choice because you have a greater variety of qualifications, but it can actually be limiting too. A fair few Universities will expect students who have done 3 years to come out with substantiallly higher grades than if you've only done two. I'm not for a minute suggesting that you may not be able to achieve them, but I suggest that you really start looking into what you want to do, where, and if they will a) accept you after three years and b) what grades they will want.

Also, you mentioned points, I know this from having just applied to Uni (I was considering staying on an extra year, but eventually decided to apply late), and many Universities won't consider the offer in terms of points, I got one points offer out of five...

Hope this helps.

Thank god you're not taking English.

Do whatever you want to do as it is your future at stake. I will say however, using the amount of points needed is not always a good base to judge how good a particular course will be. I went to Wolverhampton Univeristy. The institution as a whole is not very widely thought of as a good University but the History department is held in high regard and got high praise from the Uni equivalent of OFSTED. Also, if more people apply for the course then the standards get higher. The course itself might not be any better than the same course at a less popular Uni but you still need more points.

option 2

I did 3 years and its suprising how quickly it goes, and it relives a lot of stress spreading it out over a longer period of time.

I would consider you fortunate just to have that option.
If I were you, I would choose to increase my future options.
In my opinion, having an increased number of future options equates to future success and ultimately future satisfaction.
Having a degree from a more prestigious University will also be a benefit, if only hanging on the wall for acquaintances to see (IMHO).
#15
Well, it sounds like you'd prefer option 2. So do that. No point doing a subject you don't like and then going to a uni you don't want to be at.
#16
i did option two. you should as well.

but that was because i ****ed up the first year so am noww completely retaking it.
