I do Maths, Psychology, Media Studies and Law. Regrettably, I didn't try in Law, so I pretty much wasted a subject. I barely wrote anything in the exam on purpose. However, for the others, I did try. In Media I got a B; Psychology I got a D; and finally, Maths I got an E... I really wasn't expecting this. I was hoping BBC, or BCC.
As I have only passed two subjects (Media and Psychology), I don't know where to go with Maths. I feel I could've gotten that C if I tried all year, as everyone else who passed. With all my subjects I only revised when I could be bothered (which wasn't a lot), but then struggled to revise near my exams due to how close they were and how little I knew. My Media grade is 50% to my overall, whereas AS Psychology doesn't count to my full grade, as I resit my exams, and then some, at the end of the second year. However, like Media, my Maths grade is 50%, which is why I don't know what to do... I am not sure whether my teacher will allow me to carry on and resit the exams again, or simply redo my AS Maths classes too, alongside my other three classes (Media A2, Psychology A2 & Maths A2).
My issue is that I don't whether it would be possible to turn my grades around (considering I get to redo my AS Maths exams). I want to know whether it is possible getting a B in Psychology after receiving a D and turning that E into a C?
There is something I need to mention before I can finalise: my Psychology specification is new (AQA), and so not many people in my year did amazing; as far as I know, some of the top students got Cs. Also, this new spec. is very hard, as the questions don't seem to ask properly what it is they want. I find them quite vague, but with a very specific answer in mind. I think writing these answers are a skill, which will come over time.
I am just really worried about the second year and going to uni., as I am not sure if this will interfere with any offers I receive.
Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks.
