    Apologies if these kind of topics is bothering people but i would greatly appreciate any advice.
    Got my results in these subjects:
    Maths:
    C1 - 89 - A
    C2 - 73 - B
    S1 - 68 - C
    Overall 232/300 which is a B, 8 marks off an A
    Further Maths:
    FP1 - 67 - C
    D1 - 70 - B
    NM - 63 - C
    Overall 198/300 which is a C, 12 marks off a B
    Economics:
    Unit 1 - 46 - E
    Unit 2 - 70 - B
    Overall D
    Computing (epically failed)
    Comp1: D
    Comp2: U

    I decided im going to drop computing since it'll be too difficult to retake those modules as i have A2 to consider, so i was thinking to retake S1 to get an A at maths and maybe retake C2? Also for further maths i want a B so i should retake NM? For economics i want a B so ill retake unit 1 and i'll drop computing, is that a good idea? I decided to study something economics/maths related at uni cheers!

    Haha I'm going to have to do a bit of persuading to my teachers about predicted grades because I can already tell I'm going to get predicted a D in economics!

    Yeah hopefully! And about you wanting to study computer science - could you apply for a foundation year at uni or do a postgrad in it? Also, you mind end up doing it as your career, I remember watching the apprentice and one of the finalists actually had a U in her business A-level so back to your quote of there's always hope!
