    Im at a high risk of getting kicked out of sixth form, i got a u in 2 of my subjects and these mocks where really important as there is no AS exams. I have been improving in every exam and these mocks were so hard i struggled alot.

    Is there anyway i can convince my school to let me stay?

    Someone please help im so stressed right now

    Try to ask if you can resit AS level? As in restsrt the year

    I think doing what SuperHuman98 said might be the good option. I know how it feels but from watching friends, resitting the year and doing superbly is a lot better than carrying on next year struggling learning new things while having to revise content which was hard last year. If you're eager to carry on I would ask your teacher to give you another exam, a retest, to show that you can do better. If you do well enough on that surely you'd get another chance. Whatever you decide to do as long as you don't just give up it'll work out in the end, good luck

    I'm in the same year as u, a lot of my friends are in your situation. I would say you should continue to work hard during the summer and resit next year whilst doing A2. I know it sounds a lot to do but the A2 work will help consolidate your AS knowledge and A LOT of ppl have been in your situation before and still got amazing grades next year, so don't worry!

    Was it just a couple of bad exams or had you been getting U's throughout the year? If the latter then they are unlikely to et you continue as they would've probably warned you about the consequences
