    Hi guys, so I have failed all my as mocks. The results were as follows

    Geography D
    Psychology u
    English Literature E
    History U

    My history teacher really shouted at me I front of the class because I did so bad. I had been getting A's in class essays. The same for all my other subjects.

    I think the timing did me for history but still failed. These results, combined with the shouting from my history teacher have really sbattered my confidenice and self esteem of getting a and b grades in the summer.

    Should I give up a levels?

    What do I do?


    A D and an E are not fails they are a pass at AS/A2. How much did you revise may I ask? I found that my revision strategy that I used for GCSE had to change for my a levels. Also no one tells you of the massive step up of GCSEs to a levels. With a levels you need to master the technique of writing exam answers otherwise you will struggle in the exams.
