I failed my AS's and now I don't think I can do the course I want, help! watch

    • Thread Starter

    I messed up my AS exams because I didn't revise anywhere near as much as I shoud've done. I really want to study optometry, is there any sort of foundation year or something or should I just give up and chose a different subject to study??

    Why not resit?

    Does optometry courses allow resitters? Contact the unis that do optometry and there policies on resitting (call them first to get a direct answer then email them to what was spoken about so you have something almost written). You're not the first and most of all certainly not the last to mess up at AS! If they do graduate as well consider that also just like doing biomedicine/biochemistry and going into graduate medicine for example.

    Don't give up OP!

    Don't worry OP, I'm resitting some modules in my gap year after getting my A2 results, and I called up some Optometry unis to ask if they consider resitters and the majority of them do So if they're fine with A2 resitters, they'll be fine with AS ones! Plus, other factors such as work experience are important for your application too, not just the grades!
