Got an interview tomorrow but I got an E in my exam. watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've got an interview tomorrow at Cardiff University (probably my favourite of my choices) but I got an E in my January exam for the subject I'm applying for.
    I'm scared they're going to ask me what I got in my interview...
    Will they know what I got or that I even sat an exam?
    Can I say I didn't sit the January exam or is that not believable?
    I don't know what to do. I already have offers from other unis that I like aswell but Cardiff is definitely my favourite. I will be resitting the exam, resitting an AS exam and sitting my normal summer exam to do my best reach my target grade.

    If they ask, tell them because they will find out anyway. You could also try to explain why you did badly, what you've learnt from it, and why you'll do better in future. Anyone can have a bad exam, so show you learnt from it and still love the subject.
