    Well my situation is I got D,D,E in my A levels.

    But my A2 grades were D,E,U.

    I reckon the school messed up the Graphics (U) and that's why I was so low, especially as I got a D in AS, and in 2 modules was 1 mark off a C. I'm going to talk to my head of sixthform tomorrow with my parents, but do you think I should resit them all for January? 2 are pieces of coursework that will be added to (well I hope so) and the other was the exam. Because I was really hoping for 3 D's overall. And that E is really bad, and I hate having the U overall at A2. And I don't want any U's.

    Also there's my Maths (E) I resat C1&2 and got C's (1 being 2 marks off a B) but my C3&4 results were E & U respectively. Now I know that if I revise hard enough I will be able to get C's and therefore get a C overall, which would be great. Because I know I can get C's. And my teacher said I shouldn't be getting anything below a C really. So do you think I should retake? I would take these in January as well.

    In some ways it would be better for me to go to the Graphics lessons, but study the maths at home on my own whilst having a part time job, And do this up until January when I can then get a full time job. Because I was planning on getting job anyway.

    Can I have your views please?

    personally, dont be disappointed.dde are all passes,two of whichr good passes!(the d's).i really dont think you should be worrying about getting a u overall at A2. no one will notice it. all people will notice is ur d,d,e and thats all you will write on ur cv, not the u!. i think ur ideas of studying maths at home and going to graphics lessons are good but as for your job i would wait until you have finished january before getting a job.the last thing you want is for your job to distract you from improving your grades and believe me it can happen. hope that helps.

    Thanks for your help. My parents want me to get a full time job, and I can't do that whilst doing the graphics anyway. So I may just stick with doing the Maths resits. And forget about the graphics. Because I want to focus on maths in my job anyway. It's just the fact that the U's have made me think that all those lessons and work was pointless. It might be that all of us did rather poorly and the sixthform are going to appeal against it. But I best not get my hopes up too much.

    its not your parents decision, its yours, if you are serious about getting a higher grade in graphics, just tell them you want to improve your graphics mark before gettinga job.
