Redoing year 12 experiences? watch

    • Thread Starter



    Well done for making the difficult decision of retaking year 12. I also took this route due to choosing the wrong subjects and other reasons. Long story short, I got CDE in my first year. I decided to retake and just put every bit of energy I had into revision and work at school. Staying after school for hours in the library and just fully focused on my exams and succeeding. I picked up my results in August 2015 and got AAAA in my four AS Levels. Retaking was the best decision of my life and it shows that if you put the work in anything is possible. As for Universities.. if you have the grades they don't care how you got them. I am now holding offers at Warwick, Exeter and two unconditional offers at Nottingham and Birmingham.

    Good Luck. The extra year is so worth it
