    Hi. So I've applied to 2 colleges and yeah I know its Jan. I missed a good opportunity to go to a good college but I got my predicted grades and it all went crashing down. I got an F in my Math and the rest looked okay, Nothing special. Just C's and B's.
    I'm so stressed and no colleges and sixth forms will accept me because of my Math grade because its such a low grade. My Math teacher won't give me a C grade as she thinks I'm not capable.
    What can I do now? I am confused.

    Seek advice from the colleges call them up and disuss your options you could resit your maths alongside the course you want to do.

    Most colleges/sixth forms offer a resit anyway if you do fail. Just convince them you're going to work super hard (and do, of course) but if worse comes to worse and you do fail, it doesn't really matter because you can resit.

    Can I still do this if their deadline has passed?

    I got a rejection letter today and I have a feeling its due to the F in Math.
    They said I can come back and apply in August so should I do this?

    Of course, they'll want to see what you actually get in the exam, this is a heads up to start working your ass off and get that C in maths good luck

    If you really want to go to that college re - apply but their must be other places around. You still have time to revise and the key to the top grades in Maths is practice and past papers. If you fail re-sits are always there.
