    So would you like to retake? Do you want to go to uni after A2?

    What's your feeling? Did you think the exams were tough at the time?

    Probably retake and actually manage my time, who knows. This first year was the most unprepared thing ever.

    I don't know if I can say it was hard at the time, more as if I was not focused and hadn't revised at all properly for them.

    Yeah.If anything I want to retake as mentioned and go into my next year at college (If I can and drop one of the subjects. Preferably Chemistry)

    Hey, ow! that's a tough life lesson.

    It must really hurt.

    It's difficult to advise as we don't know you ..... but it sounds like you may have been a bit disorganised during the AS year????

    If so, you can turn this round for sure. It's just a question of willpower and learning good study habits.

    Can you do it?

    It's also a question of whether your school/college will let you repeat the year.

    You're going to need to talk to your teachers.

    If they let you back it shows they believe in you.

    I was a teacher for many years and one key lesson I learned was never to write anyone off - there is always a second chance.

    And if it doesn't work out, there are thousands of other options.

    It WILL be fine.

    Good luck - do let us know how you get on.

    Very.
    Also thanks for the kind words. I'm hoping I'll be given another shot and that I can turn this around. Just need to find some motivation I guess. Like a job or something that I would really want that would suit the A Levels I'm doing.Thanks, Will get back to you.

    Is it possible to repeat an AS year in a different school with similar courses/same course with the one of them gone/one different? I'm doing Maths, Physics, Economics and Chemistry. If I was to retake my first AS year in a different school, would they allow Maths, Physics and (maybe something else)? Considering I just butchered them.
