    I'm sort of in the same situation (except I'm worse) so I hope you don't mind me asking for help in this thread also!

    I can't believe it but I don't think I can get even 5 passes. I don't want to take a whole year off though to re-take some exams, I just want to re-sit maths I think. Now that exam was the WORST. I don't even think I got a D that's how bad I did, from not revising enough for it. I think I've got a passing grade for Eng Lang, German, Drama, and Geography (although that's a bit hopeful). With 4 passes (my sixth form requires 5) would I be able to still go on to A Levels there with only 4, and saying I'm re-taking Maths? I know I've asked this before in another thread but in this one there's been more response.
    That will depend on your college!

    However, if you resit in in November (and with only one resit that's doable alongside normal AS work) then they probably will. But obviously if they're oversubscribed they'll only take people who did get good enough grades

    ^ Oh I see. I seriously HOPE they're not oversubscribed, and plus (I don't know if it would help) but my teachers know I went through some huge problems during Year 10, and just before my exams started. Not trying to get the sympathy vote from them, but I hope they'll understand why I didn't do too well!
