Depends what your A levels are in, if its drama, current affairs, or other micky mouse sublects then quit and join the marines.

If your subjects are Maths, English or other subjects useful to your career then finish your A levels.
 
ok, wel my a-levels are phys chem bio and maths but i really cant stand sitting around doing the same old thing. i was considering joining as officer but im sure a-levels would be of great help although not required for commando officer.
 
may I suggest you come into the chat room one evening, we have some resident ex booties who are completely deranged but might be able to help.

GET YOUR A LEVELS FIRST and yes I was shouting. The armed forces need well educated personnel. It will be easier to achieve your A levels before joining than after. Also with good A level results it may be that the RN, RM, Army or RAF will sponsor you through university and then its straight to officer.

Have you considered the (RMR) Royal Marines Reserves, there are lots of students training to get there green lid that way, a bit of extra cash and it gives you an insight into the corps, then when you finish school join as a regular.

Don't drop any of your A levels. They are all well respected subjects. Lets face it you are only doing three and you are studying full time. Drop any of your subjects and I think that in tome you will regret it
You'll have plenty of time to do what you want after your exams
