Chemistry A Level..? Apparently not.
I am taking a chemistry A level. In a year. While working 2 jobs. And volunteering. So not surprisingly its not going like I hoped. Not terrible, but I don't think I'm going to make the A. I got an A in the AS in January but the A2 exam is on Wednesday and, yeh, pretty sure I'm looking at scraping a C. Sooooo, the Universities I'm applying to say that they don't care about A Levels but I don't really believe them. Should I believe them? I have work experience coming out of my ears, but I really wanted to prove I'm some sort of chemistry god as well.
I know I can't be the only person suffering through my A levels right now, wondering how I can't do at 24 what most people manage to do at 18. Please share your tales of failure and self doubt so that I can have some company over here in the pre-exam crazy place.

They usually don't look at A Levels apart from those that list their minimum requirements. I would believe them and not worry about it.
I'm sure you also won't do as bad as you think! Even then you can always resit next Jan or summer...
