    Hi,
    Basically I failed AS and got ACCD. I am soooooooo stressed out. My university course requires ABB.

    I got a D in geography and was wondering if i just should not revise for it because I only need three qualifications.

    Can I bring my ACCD up to a A B B D/C. my predicted grades are still ACCD do you think I can convince my teachers to bring the 2 Cs up to a B as I was close in both subjects... 7 marks away from a B. Btw I am retaking and I have 11 AS and A2 exams in the summer Will I cope?


    Or shall I just not retake geography? But I am scared if I go well in A2 and then it is brought down my my AS grade. I am worried my retakes will effect my A2 performance. It all messed up.. PLEASE HELP I am the most stresses out person ever. I am in a horrible position after my great gcse results I feel like I have let everyone including my self down. I cant enjoy life any more as getting into the university I want and getting ABB is taking over my mind.

    The offer is ABB, so you need ABB don't concern yourself with a forth. Just stick to the ones you are likely to get ABB in. Teachers will generally predict you what you need, as long as it is not ridiculous. If you put the work in you'll cope.
