    I was sick and off school for a while during year 12 GCSE. I missed my mocks and when I returned to school I spent approximately January to April doing controlled assessments. I took sick again before my exams, but managed to pass 8 GCSEs but didn't get expected grades. I know it makes sense to repeat GCSE year but I don't know if I can stomach this whilst friends go into sixth form and the benefits that entails. Any thoughts!

    Is it neccesary for the course you want to do in uni .yes simple then retake the year.no then you are all set don't retake go to sixth form

    ^yeah basically what the above said
