    I've looked over the OCR Mathematics grade boundaries , and it's pretty obvious I've failed. I've always found maths difficult , my highest combined score has never surpassed 68 ; so it's relatively safe to say 70 is impossible for me.This has pretty much reduced my dreams of veterinary science / zoology to zero ; because to take those subjects at uni you need a C (and the bare minimum , and that's just to get into to uni) in GCSE.I'm likley to get a C in Geography (my favorite subject , and you need a B to take anything in my sixth form) Though I feel I have gotten at least a B in Spanish , French , Eng lit/lang ; I'm worried about science (If I've got less than a B , i have no chance at science in sixth form) and I gave up on Art and Computing.
    I'm so upset , I don't even know how re-sitting works and I'm just so done

    This is GCSE angst?

    Maths you just resit it either next summer or I used to think there was a chance in the Autumn In any event if your math is poor then you will probably need till next summer anyway.

    Being upset at the moment is dull and pointless. Wait for your results and then work from there.

    If you have poor grades in science as well, then ask yourself whether your aspirations of becoming a vet really match up with your academic ability to achieve. If you still wnat to become a vet then retake your gcse or convince your school that, thats what you wnat to do and you will work extra hard in science. You need to be honest with yourself and realistic, but you should try and pursue your aspirations. Its up yo uoi to work hard enough though and for Vets you need top A levels, which means you should really be getting top grades at GCSE.

    Wait to see what the results bring before you start to panic. You could also look at other careers, sich as venetinary nursing and see if any of those might be more realistic, whislt still letting you work with animals?
