    I got a conditional offer from my local college/sixth-form, and my GPA was 7.0...

    However, now that I'm thinking about it, I think I may have botched up a few of my subjects... So what the hell do I do on the 25th when I haven't reached the minimum GPA of 6.6?

    I think some teachers may have been expecting too much from me, and maybe I got a bit too cocky and over-confident? I'm really terrified about my future, any advise would be really helpful...

    Don't worry! Usually, colleges and schools have days after results day where you go and discuss results and courses. If your results don't come back as you wanted, your college/sixth-form will usually discuss other options that are similar or if your grades aren't too bad for your course. Check the website to your college to see if they have enrollment days, I checked mine and they do. They usually discuss all this, they don't just leave you in the dark!

    Some colleges will just let you in anyway, given you've got at least a B in whatever you want to do (if you're doing a levels). You'll have to retake maths and English if you've failed, but if your college rejects you for your grades you'll probably have to go elsewhere and enroll on results day that has a lower entry requirement. Didn't you apply for any other colleges? I applied for 4 so if I don't get into my chosen one I have 3 offers to fall back on

    Don't worry too much about it. Colleges even tend to accept students who didn't exactly meet the entry requirements. Many people who I know didn't meet entry requirements for their chosen university yesterday but they still got accepted
