I had a lot of issues with attendance throughout school through being so poorly all the time - not of my own fault - and I got a heck of a lot of crap from teachers about it, though they ignored ppl who were actually being lazy and who didnt care :rolleyes:
But, despite this, I soldiered on after dropping AS Biology in Jan 09 and managed to achieve D in AS Geog, C in AS Hist and B in AS Welsh
I also had a lot of Family issues etc and my best Friends had moved away so I didnt see them - I felt very alone but despite the hard times I worked my backside off and went on to get an A Level in Key Skills, C in A2 Geog, B in A2 Hist and D in A2 Welsh.
I had absolutely appauling teachers and I did all that work on my own.
I almost left sixth form on countless occaisions - but I refused to give up!!

The point I'm trying to make is you need to make the most of the oppurtunities you have right now!!
Don't squander them - work your backside off and make a huge turnaround in yourself as a person
Everybody goes through rough times, it's part of Life - however, part of Life is also being able to learn from your mistakes and move on in the right direction
My advice would be to work hard, try your best to get your exams done this year. If they dont go so well then re-sit next year by all means, but there's no point wasting precious time that could be spent doing something more fufilling
Good Luck!!

a friend of mine dropped down a year and resat his as-levels. Personally i couldn't imagine anything worse, i would have to go to a new school, because it was just embarrassing for him, and he lost all his friends at the end of the year so...

but i'm sure if you say that's what you want to do and kick up enough of a fuss they'll have to let you.
