i failed 1 subject out of 3 can I retake only one yeareven though the as doesnt count watch

    • Thread Starter

    I failed one of my subjects but got really good results in my other two and my school has a grade limit to be able to continue into A2 and I havnt met that in that one subject, so I wanted to know if it is possible for me to drop that subject and pick up another subject and do the AS of that same time as doing my A2s of the other two subjects and then stay one more year to finish the A2 of that subject. If that is possible I can either do that or try and convince them to let me carry on with the subject into next year. The reason for me failing that subject is because I was too focused on my other two subjects in which the AS's counted and the other one didnt but I don't know if i actually want to continue with that subject anymore even if they let me.

    Depends on your school. You ought to ask them, you'll probably be alright but I can't guarantee anything - it's all down to your school's decision.
