    Doesn't particularly bother me, but it's against the rules and makes help slower for others.

    It's against the rules, so just don't do it.

    In answer to your question, I didn't get U's at AS level, but I was getting U's during the course, which I then turned into a C for the exams.

    It's possible, but it would take a huge amount of work.

    With an attitude like yours you would certainly have to make a quick U-turn. Ha.Ha. I'm so funny.

    I know people that have gone from Us to Es when they've not done retakes.
    But yes, I have seen complete turnarounds with people who've done retakes.

    I'm willing to put in the hard work but without doing a third year like that guy did in the link.

    Why are people getting emotional over silly little threads. I've only posted two including this one it's not like I've posted a dozen of them.
    And plus I'm still new to this.
    That sounds promising. What course did you take, if you dont mind me asking??

    I think retaking your entire AS year would be best. Seeing as you failed to grade at all, doing double the exams all in one year and getting good grades would be nigh on impossible then you might have to retake A2s. So all in all, I suggest you redo this year maybe with different subjects you like more.

    Big turnarounds?? Like from a U to like a C?? And have they retook the subject within the two years or have they done a third year then improved the grade??

    Within the two years. Though I do know some 3rd years. My college is full of people doing 3rd and 4th years. Most extreme change I've seen was U-A.

    I got a U in psychology. My teacher tried to persuade me to drop it but I ignored her and just said i'll do better next time.. she did hate me though. Got a D in it. The only problem now is i'm doing in at uni so i'm probably ****ed....
