Work backwards. Find out what you need to have to get into the Uni course you want to do, then find out which College courses you need, then which HighSchool courses you need. LucyNJersey is right - your marks need to be high to compete for a place. Don't discount the idea of working a few years then going in as a Mature Age Student. That's what I did and it paid off.
btw Howlinwolf - I became a Teacher, and I do know everything (though some of it is wrong)

First, you need to make sure that your grades are high. This will then enable you to take the classes that qualify you into the university. Alternatively, you can talk to a career expert for more advice.

Believe it or not, Teachers don't know everything. Really! The two most meaningful/strongest attributes which determine one's future success are: Ready! Natural abilities/talents and determination/true grit. Period. Turn the page, and decide which path you choose. Nuff" said.

Another bit of info:
If you don't accepted -- don't give up.
There are many ways to get in and graduate, even if it takes a bit longer. You can also go to a 2-year college and prepare to transfer later to a 4-year college, or take only 1-2 college classes at a time (to get the best grades you can), and lots of other ways.
--- Never give up. Grades are important, but there are some colleges that have more flexible admission requirements. The best ones do require higher grades, though, so try to develop better study practices that will help you now and also later on, in college. :)

Get better grades. No skipping, do all of your homework and make sure you actually know what you're supposed to do in class. Ask as many questions as you need.
