    I'm going to try and and keep this breif.

    I was off school for the 6 months leading up to my A2 exams (anxiety, depresion, ibs, food intolerances ect) and I had been quite ill for 3 years. I passed bvut I didn't get the results that I wanted, needed or what I'm capable of.

    So this means that this year (I'm in year 14 now) I need to try and do my exams for AS Biology, Chemistry and Physics and A2 Biology, Chemistry and Geography.

    I was unable to revise properly for my exams and finnished with a C in geography (1 mark off a B because I have a U in the GEOG4B paper), an E in biology and an E and a U in as chemistry and physics. I know my grades are awful and at the moment I don't have alot to work with.

    I am looking to studying nutrition and dietetics at uni and I'm aiming to get the grades AAB and maybe a D or C in physics for extra uscs points as the course is very competative.

    So I was just wondering has anyone else been in a similar situation and managed to improve their grade?

    Also does anyone have any advice about getting A's at alevel or anything that can help me revise and stay motivated would be reallt appreciated.

    In my opinion, if you're looking to go to a university like Surrey who just specify grades I would say that you shouldn't worry about carrying on physics because they don't look at points at all

    Also, the important thing from nutrition and dietetics is to get work experience as they are really looking for that as well as you being able to show the values of the NHS in your interview

    For me, to stay motivated (I'm not in your situation) I try to think about what I'm going to do with those grades and how happy and proud I will feel with them. I also quite often will look over my results again to make sure that I understand everything
