    I received my AS level results today and they are as follows;

    Mathematics (AQA) - E
    Info and communication (WJEC) - E
    Economics (OCR) - D
    Business BTEC level 3 diploma - D*

    In January I got:

    Maths - D
    Economics - E
    IT - E

    Right now I'm absolutely confused as to what to do next, completely disheartened and not sure on what path to take.
    I really need some advice on whether to resit a year at another college, drop out from A-levels and do a BTEC or even with these results continue onto A2 and work my butt off.

    Ok, first thing to do is always calm down and smile, always a top shout

    Now onto the serious advice, 3 years ago I sat my first year of college, worked hard the first year and had 5 Us to show for it at the end of the year, it was not a good year So I tried to knuckle down and repeat the year and did slightly better, getting 1 D, 2 Es and 2 Us so better but still not great! So this year I really went for it, stuck my head down and isolated myself during revision no phone no nothing! I've managed to come out with a 1 B, 1 C and 2 Ds which obviously isn't amazing but enough to get me into university this year!

    The moral of this story is you have to decide what's best for you, and know what you're capable of. There's no shame in resitting a year But if you know you've got it in you to work hard next year and improve on those grades there's nothing stopping you, but be aware it will be hard, if you resit the year and focus purely on your ASs it'll be much easier in the long run, just don't **** them up again like I did, 3rd year was painful

    Hope this helped! Just don't give up!

    Thanks a lot man, i was thinking of resitting a year and buckling down and just purely revising for my ASs because i already know what to expect and what to revise, hopefully i'm going to ask my teachers their opinions aswell.
