    No it hasn't, apply to resit as an external canditate (expensive though)

    What UMS do you need in those exams?

    Its not exactly the end of the world for you. If you can't resit, then just focus on the exams you have in the summer. Its not impossible to get an A, but of course it will be difficult - to get an A in a solid subject such as history or politics it would be.

    Presuming those are your A/S grades, you need 82% in A2 in politics and 85% for an A in History. It will be difficult, but you are obviously a capable person to get high B's at A/S, and working hard to revise rather than moaning and worrying about your A/S grades which can't be changed is definitely the way to go.

    Sorry to be blunt, but you're much better off not worrying about what went before. Its by no means impossible to get your A still, it will just take a lot of work

    Even if you don't get A's, your life certainly won't be over. It's not ultimately determined by silly letters but rather where you want to go in your life and how much effort you're willing to put in to get yourself there no matter how many times disappointment shows itself to you.

    I think it's round the region of £50. You didn't answer my question, how many UMS do you need for an A?
