    I think half or more of my AS level exams have gone terribly. I won't have the grades needed to go to uni. What can I do from here?

    First of all wait for results day, you can't be 100% certain that you have f*cked it up until then. If it turns out you have done quite badly my best piece of advice is to retake your AS year. I know the prospect of that isn't appealing in the slightest however in the long run, your future will be more important than being a year behind your close mates. I wouldn't recommend doing your AS retakes at the same time as your A2 as they'll be twice the amount of revision. Good luck

    Im feeling the same way about mine so far..
    I think you (and I) should retake AS whilst doing A2 and just going harder on revision.

    Also, which subjects did you do?
