    Hey guys, results day isn't far away at all now and the realisation has hit me that I'm going to get poor grades. I am almost certain I have D grades in my A2 subjects - Religious Studies, English Literature and Psychology.

    What do I do? I have failed myself and I know I could have done better. I'm sure my sixth form probably won't let me retake the year but I'd do just about anything for another chance to redeem myself. What can I do to persuade my sixth form to let me stay?

    Thanks in advance.

    If they dont want to take you, they dont want to take you I guess. But you could pretty easily get into another, albeit slightly worse sixth form in the area which will let you retake your A2 year, no?

    Could I still do this if the sixth form/college have different exam boards, though?

    Have you checked if you can take exams as an external student and revise from home?

    I should ought to be able to, but I don't want to be out of education.

    I know how you feel, I am kind of in the same boat :/

    Uni's have been know to accept you even if you receive lower grades than expected if; your Personal Statement caught their eye, you only slightly missed the grade, a lot of people didn't get the required grade or the was a low turnout of applicants. They may even offer you similar courses, though they could try to fob you off with something totally unrelated. Just phone them on results day to see if they still will accept you supposing that you do miss the grade, which you hopefully wont.

    Good Luck

    eeerm, I guess then they wont be classed as resits, you'll just be doing the a level again. Plus you'll have to learn new content, something which everyone might not be willing to do...
