Hi, this is my first post on this Website. So i am really nervous about Results Day because i think i didnt do that well in my Exams so im not sure if i will get into my Sixth Form. However, it was not entirely my fault for doing bad because in this year i was diagnosed with epilepsy and i had many seizures during and after School which prevented me from learning at School or even revising at home as i need to sleep after i get a seizure since i dont have any energy. I dont have many seizures anymore but lets just say if i didnt get the results to go into a Sixth Form they would let me? Im not talking crazy im talking about for example you got one less GCSE than you needed to get into the Sixth Form.

Well firstly, welcome! Sixth forms and colleges will accept people who fall below the requirements. If you don't get a C in English and Maths you'll have to resit the exams in the first year, but it's not a big problem. They may ask you to take only 3 A-levels although this will depend on the sixth form. Explain your situation to them and they'll understand. It's not the end! I do understand, and I had health issues right through year 10 and 11. When I applied for college, my school attendance was about 30% and they wanted 95%. I had to explain what I was struggling with but they understood and took me anyway.

Most places would just ask you to resit maths and english. The only issue may be if they have requirements for certain courses (e.g. my college required a B in english and a B in a science to study psychology A level) in which case it would be up to their discretion what they allowed you to continue with. I would call your college and explain the situation and your worries and see what they say, they'll either put your mind at rest or you'll know you need to sort out a back up plan but either way you can move forwards then!

Thanks a lot for the reply! I think I may have to resit English because my Coursework was bad since I was I'll so I couldn't improve it but hopefully they will let me resit it! In this Sixth Form they allow you to choose 3 subjects and for one of them I already have a GCSE and for one of them you don't need any requirements so that is very good. My attendance was also quite low also and you know the struggle of being I'll during the year of Exams but I hope everything goes well with you and you remain healthy! Thanks again for the reply

Thanks for the reply! I think with the Courses I'm fine since in one of them I already have a GCSE and one if them you don't need any requirements so there is only one left which will depend on my Result on that Subject. I'm mostly worried about English since my Coursework was bad but I hope I can resist that. Thanks again for the reply again!
