    I had failed all my gsces except history and i was wondering if i retook year 11 it will help md fulfil my dream of becoming a optometrist?

    It would be worth considering if you do truly believe that this time around you can better yourself otherwise its another year wasted.
    Speak to your parents, teachers and career advisers to discuss options available as retaking all your GCSE's will put you a year behind. My friend was predicted all A's and came out with D,E and U's so rethought his career goals and is now happily studying a local college with a decent part time job, decent social life and a job lined up afterwards, something worth considering ?
    Risk V Reward needs to be considered here.
    All the best in whatever you do,
