    Hi,
    Basically last year, all the way up to my exams i was predicted AAB but when it came to my exams, I had a breakdown and ended up having panic attacks in every exam, not being able to stay in the exam, I couldn't function properly at the time. I came out of it with BDE (the B being textiles as predicted) but now I have a new form tutor who has wrote my reference and nothing has been mentioned about my AS grades and also I have just received my predicted grades from my teachers for A2 and even though I am resetting all my subjects completely, I have been predicted BDE which I don't think is fair and I won't get into Uni with those grades!! I spoke to my teachers in a gneral manner and they told me that they weren't allowed to put my predicted grade above my AS grade at the moment because else it aces the school look like they are giving me unreachable predicted grades. Does anybody know what I can do or has anybody been in a similar situation?
    Thanks

    Retake and apply with your actual A2 grades. That means a gap year, but thats your decision.

    I considered that but I don't know what I would do with a gap year? I would love to work with children but I want to save up some money as well.

    Well what degree do you want to do at universitt? Try getting some paid work or work experience throughout the year related to the degree. Even workinf at the tills is fine for sometime as long as you can link your skills to your course.
