I got BCCC in my AS. I did Biology, English Lit, Maths, Chemistry.
I'm quite clever, have always been told to do medicine and can achieve AAAA with enough work. I did excellently with my GCSEs. Should I retake year 12 and do that or work extra hard for A2? Then if I don't get the grades needed, I can retake units in my gap year.
WHY I DID TERRIBLY
I spent my AS year depressed, stressed and suffered panic attacks. I felt completely overwhelmed and was entirely sure I was going to fail therefore did not work hard or even revise for some exams. I came from a terrible high school, that barely passed Ofsted and did not help me with choosing my subjects. I ended with subjects I hated which hindered my grades. But despite this (no revision), I did okay. So should I gamble?
Note: Most sixth forms in my borough including mine have introduced a new rule stating they do not allow retakes so finding a school that would take me may be hard too.
Really worried, all opinions appreciated! Thank you!
