    You should start by stop feeling sorry for yourself. Without being blunt - you didn't work hard enough. But yes If you have hopes of going to a good uni e.g a AAB course, definite resit the year.

    Someone I know got BCDE at AS and just got A*AB in his A2s without re-doing the year so with hard work and determination its definitely possible. However it will be very tough.

      I got UUU...but I still managed to go to college, then uni, get a degree & get a decent job.

      Brush yourself off and either resit, or look at other options. Anything is possible, you just have to put your mind to it!!

        I'm not good at exams, so 'bailed' out & chose a BREC; pure coursework. Got Double Distinction (equivalent to two As at A level).

        Random but why have you got YT clips in your signature of Mike & Patricia?? (Britpopprincess & her husband).

        Seems like you've found something that suits you. I too suck at exams, though I did them again and got 3 A's luckily

        Because they're so ****ing awesome and cute

            :hugs: These things happen. I'm assuming these were your AS levels. Don't beat yourself up about it. I know it's easy to say that now, and your emotions are raw, but now you know what to expect! AS levels are a big step up from GCSE so they're not easy. Resitting a year isn't the end of the world. You need to do what's best for YOU, and what will help you achieve what you want and get where you want to be. And I promise you, you will get there eventually if you want it enough. Just keep that goal in mind. Good luck.

            So tough you're broken mentally and physically when it's over.
