    Sorry to be too negative. But my prediction is always quite right when it comes to predictable my own exam grades..

    Anyway, before 15th August (the day when you recieve the exam results), I knew I had failed my A2 exams. When I said I failed, I meant geting Cs or Ds in my subjects. I knew I made the wrong choices in subjects (maths, Further Maths, and Pre-U physics), but I don't want to make any excuse. I did work hard for the exams, and clearly something doesn't work. I was very low from the day I had the first exam (edexcel M3), till now. My parents are also not giving me any money so I need to earn a living myself. I went through the job recruitment website, unfortunately no one wants to hire inexperienced, non-university graduate. I had pretty much running out of ideas and hope of myself. I was wondering if I can retake my A2 levels in Hong Kong as I live there. If so, How and when and where I can apply?

    Thanks so much for reading this. Gladly if there are some useful advices.

    I know you can retake A2 levels here in the UK, I assume you are also allowed to do the same there. Here we just apply to any school, and ask if we can resit the particular exams, either as external candidate (so you only come in for exam at end of year) or as a student resitting the entire year.

    If you have the time you can resit next year in the summer but that'll be your eraliest chance. I'm sure if you look around online you may find a centre that deals with A-level exams but seeing as they will ve more scarce in Hong Kong than in the UK you may have to pay top dollah.

    Best of luck bro, you can do it
