I suggested a couple of retakes a while ago.
Yep I think I will do this when I am working before my masters. However I would feel so stupid studying them in an FE college. I would rather just teach myself at home.

What is her name anyway :rolleyes:

I got 3 A* and 4 A.

Ah what the hell, all that stress and then you find it amounted to squat, what a piss-take.
What are you on about?

GCSE's hold a lot of weight in the applications procedure. They are the only qualifications you have completely obtained at that point, along with any AS Levels u cahed in (if any at all).

They do have a considerable amount of importance. Low grades are a hinderance. (Not that yours are, just saying..)

...but how did you know it was in re?
there are only a few subjects you can do the short course in, RE being the most common because it's compulsory to have lessons in it anyway.

i did the full course though

I'm prud of my work but knew I could've done better if I actually bothered (heehee took the Homer SImpson route). But what I mean by squat is that GCSEs are nought in the big people's world.

I'm not too good at languages, as people have probably noticed.

My grades where 3A*s, 4A's and 3B's - (English lang, English Lit and French)

I think GCSE's only matter to get you into A levels.

Why not do that then? Why can't you attend a night class or something? At the college I go to for Maths (other A-Levels at school), there is a night class. Most people who go to this are adults, older than you. And they aren't doing a degree.

Sorry, but I disagree completely.

In the Application's procedure, they do carry a fair amount of weight. Lower grades are a hinderance i.e.) Compared to others who apply.

Whose applications procedure? Unis maybe but I got into 5 out of 6 given competition from hard workers , and employers don't look at them.

Langauges and maths were my downfall - I got Bs in them : For the 6 As I got - for four of them were 1 mark away from A* - horrible exam markers! Oh well.

It's often a demoralising and also a difficult step to retake them, but if you really feel it will help then go for it.

For Universities I suppose that may be the case but Predicted grades carry more weight I think.

It's all a series of steps. A good foundation, and you can build from there and reach a high level in teh big world more comfortably.
