    So results day is on the 18th and I feel like I have failed, I know I will get the traditional 'you'll be fine' or 'you won't know until results day' well I don't wanna wait until then just to realise the fact that I have failed.
    What options are open to me?
    I study Law, Government and Politics, Psychology and Media,
    I did really well on my Law and Media exams (well at least I felt like I did and I was happy about the questions that came up) so assuming I passed 2/3 that I need do you think I could persuade the college to keep me on with a subject I may have got an E or below in?
    Specifically in my politics exam I 'screwed up' the 40 marker (1/2 of paper 2) so maybe I could get away with that? I mean I kicked myself when I cam out because it's not as if I didn't know the answer, it was more that I misinterpreted the question unfortunately.

    So what should I do, Re-take AS ? And be in a class with people younger than me who went to my high school! (I'd feel pretty embarrassed by that)
    Do a BTEC in a subject I don't like?
    Or do an apprenticeship and never earn over 30 k for the rest of my life.
    Or beg on my knees for another chance at A2.

    I have no idea what to do and I need advice.

    CHEERS!

    I feel exactly like you but it doesn't matter if you repeat year 12. More people do than you think. If I fail I'm just gonna keep pushing on and I know for sure that I would get MUCH better grades

    you could repeat yr 12 again or look for alternatives like going into an apprentiships etc...
    Worse comes to worse, talk to your head of sixth form about the situation and what options you have on results day.

    I reckon you'd be able to convince the college to keep you on if you did alright in Law and Media.

    Just curious, how did you mess up the Politics? I also do Politics. I can't even remember which question I did... I think it was Judiciary.

    They are so messed up because the one they believe him is a mortal being like me and you..Mohammed didn't come to die for mankind,christ did and in him is life,love and prosperity,good health and anything good you can think..The Muslims are under satan captivity if they dont change the state of their mind..Some muslims are converting from darkness to light..they are lost so all their doings are evil and no good to them because the bible says woe if you believe in a fellow man..Mohammed is nothing he is a mortal God used but the last salvation was jesus christ we redeemed mankind by his blood so if they want peace they must change now..By this by the power of his blood and cross i release our fellow muslims from darkness to light.Amen and shalom

    I honestly don't understand why people want to re-take AS because with the reform to A-Levels you have to do your AS content again in the second year anyway?

    I think they mean the question was about reforms.

    Just so you know guys I am a waste of oxygen ans sorry for wasting your time.

    I did pass my AS but the doubt had overtaken me long before which is why I wrote this post.

    So good for me, I didn't get the best grades (CCCD)
    But I was 2 UMS off a B in gov&pol and 3 UMS off a B in law.
