    Hi all,
    If I don't do as well as i expected, Shall i resit the year?
    I will have to resit the exams at A2 along with my A2 exams and that will be a lot of stress! Plus, I sort of know how the game works. If i resit I can make sure i'm on the track from the start of the year and make sure I get my grades and I can have a fresh start!
    HOWEVER! What's worrying me is the new A-level reforms!!! The fact that it's all going to be linear next year and I'm scared that resitting might reduce my chance of getting into Russel group University!
    Shall i Resit? I just want a genuine ideas and advice.
    OR I can try my best work really hard at A2 and resits some AS subjects at the end of year to get back on the game!
    What shall i do?
    Thank you!

    Depends on what grades you get. You can always resit just one module of the AS to try and up your grade. If, by any chance, you get a worse grade in your re-sit then your original grade will stand (i.e. highest grade stands) that way you don't have to re-sit the whole year. I've taken 2 re-sits this year (one module each from 2 subjects) and I've been offered a place at a RGroup Uni so its not that important. A friend has an unconditional offer at a RGroup uni and has re-sat one of his modules too. Hope that helps.

    I dont know what to do anymore...

    Im not surei even want to go to uni anymore, i dont think ill be any good there because i get so stressed and then depressed around exam periods, which is made 10x worse when im on my own, which will be university study in a nutshell really.

    I genuinelyhave an interest in maths and physics, and i think i am smart enough to understand the content, but i just cant perform in and around exams (ie most of my a2 maths exams and stuff are next week and i cant even bring myself to revise)

    I think everyone feels like this around exam times really. The best thing to do is not to over think about the future so much and to just focus on the closest obstacle (i.e. your A2 exams) in front of you. Make sure you leave space for relaxation and recovery as well as your revision.

    Regarding the first bit of your post, you won't be on your own. You will make friends with people on your course, people in your halls or people you come across in your day to day life. They'll be there as a support mechanism. If things get too much, student services at Notts is great and they can hook you up with a personal 'buddy'.

    So, I'd say don't think about it too much right now.
