Hey everyone, so this is a question that goes out to sixth form students who repeated the year. I'm just wondering what grades did you get first time and then second time around? What changed? And how did you change your attitude the second time around.
I'm a resit student, so I'm in year 12, and I'm worried I won't get straight A's this year, will this lower my chances of getting into the course I want to do at university (chemical engineering)?
Thank youuuuu

Hi

I resat year 12. I got EEUU the first time and ABC (7UMS total off AAB) the second time, so you definitely won't need to get straight A's! I applied for various Politics courses and got offers from Birmingham among others, and have a conditional place at Cardiff.

What changed... I guess that's different between individuals. I know what I did wrong (lack of attendance, not enough revision) so I changed it the second time around! I was shocked at Psychology (E) though because I worked so hard on that. I guess it was exam technique?
