I'm in year 12 in 6th form college and I've failed GCSE Maths when I was in secondary school (although I have 5 B's and 7 C's) and I am doing 3 A levels (History, Law and Geography) which I am currently doing well in. However I feel embarrassed, as I never did Maths retake in 1st year of college. I'm doing them right now.

So? Just grab that maths test and show it whose the boss. Things in life are only as difficult as you believe it to be.

Why? You don't know how stressful it can be.

I can pass but it is the social stigma that comes with this experience...

I'm sorry, but that post is so badly written that I don't understand what you're saying. What are you asking?

Since we're making confessions:

In Mrs. Harvey's class in primary school in 1982, I cheated in all my "telling the time" cards, and ticked them all off as being done, even though I hadn't done them.

I have a confession you just robbed me off 10 seconds of my life reading your post! At least your learning from your previous mistakes and trying to rectify the situation good luck in your test!

I feel horrible. The experience of failing maths and having to retake them in Sixth Form makes me wonder every night about my future...

You're so right. This must have been how Lance Armstrong got started.

Eh it's not really a big deal. My older sis failed GCSE Maths in Secondary School, but that was because she went to a crap school where they tell you the best you can do is get a D/C + she had to take care of me and my younger siblings as my mum had mental health issues at the time. She retook it in her first year of college, passed (albeit it was a C) but she's managed to go to a Russel Group uni, has had two different jobs in two different career sectors and has gone travelling. She's looking for another job atm, but she's done a lot with her life and has a lot of experience; there's no doubt in my mind she'll do well in the future. Employers don't really care if she retook it, and no one else cares. Just do it and do well in your A-levels

No man just don't worry, study maths at home a bit every day, then just take the test no one does everything right the first time.
