I can pass but it is the social stigma that comes with this experience...
Eh, what social stigma? You'll only get treated like you have no intelligence if you act like you don't have any. I totally ****ed up everything I did at high school and had to go via college to repair the damage, but no-one ever looked down upon me based on my intelligence. If anything, I was most often asked while at college why I hadn't gone straight to Uni, they were surprised to hear I'd messed up so badly at school.

So yeah, it's all in your mind.

What a load of horse****. Straight out of a Hollywood A-lister's cosmetically chiselled arse
Okay, your right I'm guessing if you realize it is hard you did it right and actually work . But if you don't find it hard and fail, then does that mean? That it might be possible that it was actually harder than you thought it was? Yes or no? I'm going with yes and believe it or not maths is not easy for some people.

Eh it's not really a big deal. My older sis failed GCSE Maths in Secondary School, but that was because she went to a crap school where they tell you the best you can do is get a D/C + she had to take care of me and my younger siblings as my mum had mental health issues at the time. She retook it in her first year of college, passed (albeit it was a C) but she's managed to go to a Russel Group uni, has had two different jobs in two different career sectors and has gone travelling. She's looking for another job atm, but she's done a lot with her life and has a lot of experience; there's no doubt in my mind she'll do well in the future. Employers don't really care if she retook it, and no one else cares. Just do it and do well in your A-levels
Can you tell what job area/field your sister is in? Thank you.

She graduated with a 2:2 in Social Sciences from Manchester University and went on to become a Learning Mentor. Did this for a couple of years then she resigned and did a TEFL course, teaching english in a village school in Thailand. She did that for 6 months and travelled for another 2 months over Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.

She returned, and found a job as a receptionist and accounts assisstant in a energy firm in central London. So she books hotels, arrange flights and meetings as well as do a lot of the accounts for the company (this is someone who got a C in Maths mind you!). She's become really interested in accountancy and has learned a lot about it, even read a book on it. However she's decided she might go travelling a bit more and then go work for a travel company (she said she's always wanted to do this).

Hope this helps

I wish you luck on that Just don't let your resit hold you back. I know on this site everyone makes a big deal out of GCSE's, but they're not the end all and be all in university applications and beyond, especially as you won't be going into a maths-related field. Good luck for the future!

Hi, Just pressed for doing Higher paper and predicted an 'A'. I changed my idea of doing Law and would like to do A-Level Bio, Chem and Electronic or Physics. I hope to do Biochemistry at unis like Sheffield/Nottingham/KCL. What your future plans?
