    Hi i just got my results and they were horrible literally Fs Us Ds Es

    i got a U in maths and eng lit i got a D i don't remember what i got for language but i just got rejected by my college and they told me if you retake your GCSEs you still cant be a doctor because theyll look at the results you had the first time

    I thought that was a bit stupid and it put me down a lot because that means i cant get a second chance and its all because of the crappy school i went too i only had 2 teachers and they werent even qualified I complained so many times to the education system nothing happened

    Im just worried if i wont be able to follow my dreams with the grades i got even if i retake them someone help please THANK YOU

    Thats so unfair they dont give people second chances thats the point of resiting the exams again it's because you failed the first time you want to do better

    its probably feasible if you have extenuating circumstances.

    If you can't study medicine in the UK, would you study medicine abroad? Other Unis abroad may be less strict on first time GCSEs
