    No use in making them feel like **** either. Maybe exams are not one of their strongest assets, there's no point degrading them, it'll make them feel worse.

    Well he's predicted D*DD so it seems he's transformed academically. That equivalent to A-Levels would get him into a good University.

    And yes these are my GCSEs.

    Do you think these would ruin any chance of succeeding in life?
    You could probably do with retaking your English ones if poss. Generally if you have 5 Cs or above, including maths and english, you're ok.

    Unfortunately they don't do GCSE English at my college, only functional skills English. I would have been able to apply to better universities if I did have the GCSE, but what annoys me the most is that my English level is probably closer to B/A.

    If you have managed to go to college and apply to universities then you should be ok, if you have the required qualifications for the courses you're applying for? They MIGHT look at your GCSEs, but once you're on your degree programme I doubt anybody will again. If they do, you can always go back and retake. My step sister is 23 and is retaking maths GCSE
