On results day I was hoping for AAB and expecting ABB I opened the envolpe and found I had B(politics)B(history)C(physics). In mocks/essays I'd been consistently getting enough to get ABB(ocasionally getting AAB) overall, I didn't panic on exam day, but I did significantly worse then expected and have an idea of why, before the exams I was sitting on an A and two High Bs based on AS levels +coursework. I need 7(physics),10(history) and 17(politiocs) UMS to bring the grades to AAB overall. To do this I would have to resit 3 out of 5 exams I took this year, however, my sixthform have changed the courses they run so would only offer any taught lessons in Politics (due to them changing specs/exam boards in the other 2)
For refrence my UCAS choices where the Universities of Leed and Nottingham for BA Politics and BA politics and International relations respectively.
I have secured a place at UWE for politics and international relations through clearing and am currently deciding whether to withdraw this choice and resist the exams .
I am currently qualifying to be a climbing instructor, so it wouldn't be a blank year on my CV as I'd be able to do work and get NGB qualifications for climbing instruction such as the SPA and CWLA.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, particularly from those who've gone through clearing or resits
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
