    So I got my AS results a few days ago and didn't do well got C (A2 German) D in Psychology and U's in both Biology and Economics which was expected because I didn't work hard. So I want to retake year 12 and do all these subjects again however one of the sixth forms wont allow me to retake the subjects I already took. I do have a backup which is start year 13 in my current school and do Psychology and BTEC Applied Science however I do not want to go there nor do I want to do these subjects. What should I do? Tomorrow is the last chance for me enroll into another sixth form.

    Have you found out if other sixth forms/colleges might accept you onto Year 12?

    Yes I have emailed sixth forms and they told me to come for enrollment tomorrow. However one of the schools told me that I cannot do the subjects I've already done and that's the thing I have to do Biology and I want to. There are other sixth forms too so if this doesn't work I will have to try at another. I can just hope that one of the sixth forms accepts me and lets me do the subjects I want to do.

    Yeah definitely go to them in person so you can talk to them about it and explain your situation.You might find it useful to bring your parents, I know people at my sixth form do it to discuss options for the future with parents and the teachers welcome that. Best of luck for tomorrow, I hope you get to study the subjects that you want.

    Thanks for your positive reply I really appreciate it . Unfortunately I tried at a sixth form yesterday and they told me they wouldn't offer me the subjects that I want to do. They said the only courses they can offer me are BTEC courses I was extremely upset and cried. I have just messed up. I didn't take the exam serious enough and I have realised that. I have learned from the mistakes and I think I do deserve a second chance. There must be a way that I can retake isn't it? I just don't see the point of going to my old sixth form and continuing with year 13 because the only subjects I will do is Psychology and Applied Science BTEC. what do I do know? Sorry for this very long text
