    Hey guys. I'm in a bit of a pickle.

    So i've been on a gap year this year. I have 8 retakes to do. The plan was to revise for these all throughout the year... however I've been procrastinating all year and now i find myself with 6 weeks to learn all of AQA Computing(Not COMP4) and Edexcel D1 D2 M2 S2 FP3. Because i haven't done anything all year I've pretty much forgotten everything and i'm starting now from scratch.

    I also have an offer from Cardiff Uni.

    Do you guys think I still have a chance, or is my life over?

    Maybe if you study for 12 hours a day for the next 2 weeks you may have a chance, otherwise your're pretty much ****ed
