    Hey everyone, sorry if I go on but I'm really upset and confused. My AS results are:

    AQA History - A
    AQA D&T - B
    AQA English Lit & Lang - C

    I'm thrilled to bits with History but gutted with English - I was predicted an A overall and got a high B in the January exam. However, in the June exam I totally messed up and got a D, bringing me down to a C overall - I just don't know what did.

    I really want to study English Lit at uni and I had my heart set on Manchester but of course the basic requirement for English A Level is an A. I'm getting the paper remarked and sent back but I don't know whether to retake the whole course and stay behind a year or retake the second exam in June next year.

    Basically I feel awful and my teacher is gutted, just wondering if this C will now affect my UCAS application as even if I retook it next year, the result would be past the application deadline?

    Thank you lots in advance
