    Just now my Sixth Form Careers adviser sent me a e-mail:

    "Mrs (Head of 6th form) has asked me to contact you about your plans now you have received your GCSE grades. Do you need any help at all? I will be in school tomorrow until 2.30 so if you would like to come in and talk about your options please come in to school whenever suits you best and ask to speak to me (Careers adviser) or if you have plans please could you let us know what they are."

    I also got a e-mail from the college I looked at that want's to see me this week with my results and photo ID (Which I don't have any of) to look at getting me on a course and a resit for English.

    What should I do now?

    I don't have 5 C's or better I have 4 and my sixth form says that I can't go there after going today!

    What do I do now??? Where do I go now???

    I also need to resit English Language because I got a D. If I would have got a C in this like in my year 10 mocks then I would not have all this to deal with!
    My local college refuses to take me on for GCSE because my school keeps messing with how close to a C I was I Improved from my mocks and I am getting told all these lies and being passed around the college to find me a course but they are supposed to be prepared to be flexible for you to still be able to get on my school screwed over my GCSE English anyway with changing teaches

    Why do you even want to continue on an academic route? It's obviously not your forte.

    Find a job and start your life. If you can't get 5 Cs at GCSEs, what you want to do A Levels in order to get to uni? Really?

    Find something that doesn't require academics and make a career out of that. So sad that people think academic education achievement is the be all end all.
    I got 4 C's and 1 B and my college won't take me on
