    Hey all,

    I'm sitting my GCSEs in May/June and will be attending Sixth Form to take A Levels in September. Due to anxiety issues, I haven't attended mainstream school (I'm at a unit), so can only sit 4 GCSEs. I'm really awful at one of my subjects so am expecting a D or an E in it. The rest I'm expecting to be B's. I think the College are OK with this, but they want me to take 3 A Levels... I want to take 3 A Levels and Level 3 Core Maths!

    Does anyone know how I could possibly persuade them?

    Thanks so much!

    They said that final decisions will be made after I've received my GCSE results, as with all/most students.

    Does that mean my timetable can change?

    Thanks for the advice.

    It could potentially change. It depends on a number of things. Each college has their own way of organising their timetables so it really depends on whether or not there are any clashes.

    Good luck on your exams
