    Hello everyone, I recently just got my As results for the January exams and they are appalling. I did 3 exams and I got D,E,E. Before anyone starts judging me, I just want to say that I revised really hard and completed most/ if not all of the past papers and even looked at mark schemes to see the idea answer that the examiners wanted. I cried so much when I got those grades because I honestly do not know or betterstill don't understand what happened. Anyway, I'm resitting them in May/June and I have I am also paying to get my papers back to see where I went wrong. Can anyone just give me advise on how to approach my next exams and is it true that I can't go to a good unversity because I am resitting my exams???

    PS: I'm currently studying Chem,Bio,Maths, and Psychology.
    Just think of your jan results as mock exam results! Then you will feel more confident as you revise for your retakes! I haven't done any jan modules so I haven't actually experienced what you have but what I can say is just do past papers which you've done but also learn model answers! They're really helpful

    I did bio chem ict languages..im more of a vocational learner but I stil took up bio and chem because I loved science and ended up with EEAB respectively in my first yr...I then worked extra hard like really hard but I only managed to bump it up to DDAB..i'm not saying you might end up the same way, Im just saying people learn in different ways and maybe try a different approach? Those are all really intense subjects which require a lot of private study, do you know what course you want to do at university?

    I know exactly how you feel I was so gutted I was never gonna reach my goal of becoming a nurse which broke me!!
