Repeating Year 11

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    So basically I have just got my GCSEs back, and enrolled into college. However I didn't get the results I was hoping for to get into LVL 3, and then because I want to go into uni I still didn't get enough grades for uni as I only passed two ( English lit&lang ) and for the one I want to do, nursing, you need to have passed 5. I know college you can take maths on the side, but I need sciences and you can't take that on the side in college. And I haven't got enough grades for 6th form. So, I was thinking instead of wasting 3 years in college doing two in LVL 2 and one in LVL 3 and possibly not even get to uni because of my grades( yes the courses get me enough UCAS points so that's fine) I was thinking could I just go back to school, retake year 11 core subjects, Maths and science. And then next year go straight into LVL 3 if I get the right grades and if I don't get the right ones the clearly the path I want to go down isn't right for me and I do another course or do an apprenticeship.

    So after all that basically can I retake year 11, and study science and maths again, like 2-3 days a week whenever, like a college or 6th form.
    I know it's confusing but I'm so adamant in what I want I'll try anything to get into it.


    You'll have to speak to your school but I don't think it is possible to retake science subjects and redo year11 like that. I think the only reason they would allow that is if you had really good reason that could have affected your progress and exam results such as a medical reason
    Talk to your school about it. They know you best so can recommend the best thing to do
    Good luck

    You can ask, but I'd be astonished it they said yes. I'd talk to the college about other options.

    Just pay for the resits yourself
