    This summer I took my exams and did not do so well in them getting a EUU in economics Use of math and ICT (ICT being the subject i got a E in) I found Use of Math rather difficult this year and did not really enjoy it as much as my other subjects, when choosing it I thought it would be the logical "long term" choice not thinking about if i was going to enjoy it or find it difficult. Now that i have done a year of it i don't know if i want to continue doing it next year but don't know what subjects that i would be able to choose in replacement to it. I managed to pass decision getting a B in it but failed algebra and data getting two U's. I really did enjoy economics this year but i definitely did not revise enough due to the fact it was only a mock, i thought that i would focus more on my other subjects than economics and that did not go well either. Because it was a mock a senior member of staff that i spoke to said that i would be able to continue economics at a2 but that was depending on my grades and now i really am scared that i will not be accepted into the next year to continue my studies. As well as economics i did like ICT as well and thought i would pass, but not pass with an E grade. In past papers that i did in class i was getting low B's and high C's which was pretty good considering that my target was a D. I achieved a B in my course work and was quite proud of that but in the exam i did not do so well ad ended up with a E. I know the reason for my bad grades was that i did not put in as much revision as i should have done and my lack of motivation and arrogance costed me me a lot. But now i realise where i went wrong and want to do my best to do well next year but i don't know if i will be accepted into college or not this year. If anyone could give me some advice on what i could do or what options i have would be much appreciated.
