    seriously, 3 U's at a level. I knew i wasn't going to do well, but this went horribly, i thought i was ok at my subjects (Maths, Physics and Computing). Im confused as to what to do, whether or not stay on for A2 ( bad idea imo) or retake the year ( my personal preference) or just drop all of them and take a vocational course instead. Help me out please, guys

    Do you feel as though you worked as hard as you could this year? Listened in all the lessons, did all the homework, did all the revision and past papers? If not, then I would retake the year with a new attitude. If you did work as hard as you could, then maybe it's time to consider a vocational subject :yep:

    Then I would retake Year 12. Do it properly. It's really hard to keep on top of your AS AND A2 studies, so I would just focus on your Year 12 stuff and seeing how much of a difference it can make :yep:
