    Essentially I have got 1A* 8As and a C at GCSE, I have lost 8 weeks of Biology and chem study resulting in around a 80 hour lesson loss, I suffer from depression and I am genuinely sure this dilemma is making my situation worse, I really want to do A levels, with my grades I feel it would be a shame not to, but my only logical option is to take a year off and re join the academic year next year to undertake my AS levels. Would this be allowed?
    Some quick advice would be much appreciated.

    Just recover the time during this half term

    Maybe fall back a year now. Go over some stuff by yourself and try to make sure you have your illness under control.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
