    In my four AS levels I received:

    English Lit(B)

    My school has a general rule that you need to have 3 C's to continue at A2. I'm in the position where I myself expected to get higher grades than this judging by my performance in the actual exams, however my mock results wouldn't necessarily support this.

    I'm fine for English, and I feel that my Computing teacher would root for me to get higher than a C next year if I resit the exam (C for coursework, E for exam), but Physics is definitely a no since I struggled all year.

    So Math is my only chance. I got two D's in C1 and C2, and a U in M1.

    The U in M1 I expected, but I was absolutely floored by my C1 and C2 results. I was resitting C1 since I got a D the first time, but I swear I thought I'd gotten at least B's in both. My teacher knows that I'm not stupid, but I don't know what he would say if I were to ask for his help here.

    I'm not looking for high prediction grades, I just want to stay on at my school. I know I can turn my grades around if I get another chance, but I don't know if the school would allow me the chance.

    Any helpful advice?
