    If Resit wasn't an option i'd probably go straight down the RAF route, rather than going after uni to fast-track.

    Resit my subjects. But if not, perhaps find an apprenticeship or something that goes down a similar route.

    If you failed so bad that you believed redoing them wouldnt be of a huge advantage but still want to aspirations of going to university. You could always go college and do a Btec course and then go to uni. Its longer and it wont guarrentee you oxbridge material but its a decent avenue

    If I have not an GSCE, I would try to get an one. Otherwise I do nothing for school.

    Cry, feel suicidal for a while, move on and then resit them the following year.

    It would be so disappointing for anyone who put the effort in to do well.

    How about suicide? It is an exaggerated emotion in my opinion, but there were people who commit suicide concerning bad marks, why not?

    That is the right attitude! What is a paper full of (subjective) marks compared to the life?

    It's not something I think about too much as unfortunately a reasonable academic record is all I have going for me in this world; noob at guitar and no real business brain that I know of.
