    I want to study civil engineering in uni but results day kinda ruined everything. Most unis ask for maths and another science subject ( chem, bio, physics and geography).

    I am studying geo, maths, spanish and english lit AS. Results day was a big surprise because the subject I worked the hardest for was geo and I only got a C, maths i had to self- study because my sixth form for wouldnt let me do it because I got a B at gcse only 1 mark off an A. So it was really difficult because they forced to do a fifth subject in school because I was doing maths outside school.

    As a result,I failed maths because I didnt have anytime to revise for it and I only started doing it in March I knew I was gonna fail but because I paid for it I just did the exam anyway. So I got ABCU (spanish, engl, geo and maths)

    -I dont know whether I should take a gap year and re-sit maths
    -or move schools drop eng lit because I hate it re-sit one of my geo exams keep spanish and do a-level maths in one year.
    - drop geo, keep english, spanish and do maths a-level in one year

    so what do you guys think? if you have any other possible solutions please share it. thanks.

    I mean good on you for trying to do the maths outside of school. I guess the options are kinda left up to you. You could take a gap year and retake maths with a science (physics is probably your best bet for civil engineering). I mean a year isn't a long time, and for you all you know you could come out with As or Bs in both subjects. I think it would be worth taking the gap year. You could even use the year to maybe gain some work experience in the field you want to go into.
