    So after crying about my horrendous results for a good 24 hours, I realised that I need to retake four exams which are A2 bio and chem exams. I won't be in school for these as they no longer teach the old spec, so I'll be studying myself at home. I'll probably be working for 3/7 days so I have the other 4 days plus some extra time to study. Does anyone whose been in a similar situation to mine have any tips or any ways by which I should plan my day?
    Thanks

    I hate comments that are unhelpful.

    I have not been a similar situation but I have had multiple resits while doing my AS level back in 2011. The best way I find is to pull out every pass paper under the sun and revise from them. That in combination with a revision timetable may help you organise where you may need to improve. You could maybe find a tutor who might be able to find tips that simplify things for you.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I've been having similar thoughts about getting a tutor for the more difficult topics. I seem to struggle alot with calculations so maybe they could help with that. The thing is that I really wasn't expecting to do as bad as I did, as I worked much harder than last year, resitting wasn't an option I'de even considered. I think I left doing exam papers too late this time, so I wasn't able to look at them as in depth as I had originally wanted to. This time I'll definitely plan better.
