I've had a very bad year with AS Levels, and the result is very disastrous for me.
Government & Politics - A
Law - B
Maths - U
Computer Science - U (dropping, so this is not an issue for me)
For context, I've had a very hard year with Maths. I went in with A* at GCSE and had a lot of difficulty making it click. I got into a sort of depression cycle with it in which not doing well made me not try, and not trying made me not do well. I got an E in a mock exam, which resulted in some intensive revision, which was very beneficial, I realised my issues were a mental block, and I started to push my grade back, getting an A and a B in the last mocks before the exam.
Unfortunately, I had an insanely bad eczema flare shortly after that, during the revision and exams, which stopped me from preparing for any of my exams, I was bedridden except for exams which I couldn't not attend. Luckily I could manage Politics and Law with some light reading and natural ability (I'm a politics nerd, so I could manage that), but preparing for Maths was just impossible in my state.
My maths teacher (who is also head of department and deals with this sort of thing) has said that he'll recommend I'm not dropped but can't guarantee anything. My worries are either that the college won't let me resit Maths in the next year, or they won't let me onto A2 at all. I'm also worried that the college telling universities about my illness won't be able to get me any good university places, or universities won't believe them, citing my Politics and Law results.
Anybody have any similar experiences and/or reassurance?
