    ok so I was studying in U.A.E up till grade 9 (2014) then my dad lost his job so i had to go back to my home town and i left in the middle of grade 9 there i started grade 9 from a different system (Metric system) i completed grade 9 (2015 November) there but my dad got a new job in U.A.E so i had to go back. But I couldn't get admission so i wasted almost the entire year and now in may i am privately giving exams of three subjects (Maths ,Pakistan Studies and islamiyat) but i only had three months to study and i am certain that I will not pass the exams but my father has already paid for the registration and i give five more papers (Physics,Biology,Chemistry,Engli sh and language) and complete my O'Levels and join school grade 12(A'levels) this September. I thin this is a bad idea as i am certain that i will not get good grades in these exams or the next and the school will not accept me so instead i want to complete all my O'Level papers next year in June 2017 then join school in September 2017 grade 12(A'levels) but doing this i will be one year behind in my studies. so which is the more better option to give these papers in these months or try next year and be behind by one year?
    P.s sorry for the bad english it isn't my native language

    I'd say if it is possible to not sit the exams then don't sit them and resit for the next year.

    Don't worry if you're a year behind, at least that way you won't be caught back with grades you're not happy with.
