    You can't retake in November, I'm afraid. Do you want to continue with A-Levels? You'll need to answer that question yourself.

    You can't retake in November, it will have to be in summer next year. Have you looked at the entry requirements for the course you want to study? You should be able to get ACC predictions, so if that's enough for English language then you could get away with just resitting a few modules alongside A2. If not, you're probably better of redoing year 12.

    Have you figured out why you didn't do as well as you could have? Was it a lack of revision, or were you not revising efficiently? Try and work out how you can improve next year, whatever you end up doing. Best of luck with whichever you choose

    100% continue imo, i got worse than you CDE last year and luckily all my teachers said to continue and still turned it around with only about 3 resits to BBC. I would only advise people to redo the year if they dislike their subjects and don;t want to contiue or they get 3 Ds or below

    Imo don't retake the year, continue with A levels and resit some modules from AS. When you get your A level results back, if you don't get your grades then you can take a gap year and resit some modules then. But I think it will just unmotivate you even more to fall back a year now and see all your friends/classmates move on a year

    All exam boards. It's been that way since 2014.
