The first grade I saw was a grade A in my A2 Italian (as I took the AS the previous year ) so I got very exited pulled the rest of result sheet and there they were just chilling , not 1 , not 2 but 3 amazing Us , I am not an A* student but I know the that put in so much effort in to them . My head of year called me a side and told me that they will not me enrolling me so I will need find somewhere to go and the fact that i was already retaking limits my chances in finding any places , I asked my family members about getting them remarked but they haven't been really supportive , I'm so confused , I honestly don't know what to do , I was thinking to do a btec diploma in business so i can add it to my A grade , but I honestly don't know. only useful advise please , really feel awful so I honestly don't need any mockery.

    remarking will cost a lot of money, depends on how far away your marks are from the grade above. Though at best, I should imagine you may be able to go up only one grade maybe two depending on how badly your examiner marked it.
    Consider what you want to do as a career, then perhaps google options as to how to get to that career? There are many ways to getting through to where you want to be.
    Good luck

    You got 3 Us in three different subjects but you worked hard and revised and did everything you could?

    To me that makes no sense... What were your predicted grades or effort grades throughout the year? Were they consistent?

    If you're an average B/C student but you got Us I would defo remark them.

    However, since you retook them, you should consider A-levels might not be for you and either look into doing an apprenticeship or a BTEC at a local college or sixth form.

    Best of luck!
