    All colleges allow students to resit some AS exams while continuing to A2 BUT not if you have totally flopped and basically need to relearn and resit most if not the whole lot. It isn't realistic to think you can be successful. As above, you can only find out who might accept you by calling them and discussing your specific circumstances with them.

    Call up some local colleges to see if any are willing to do that, we can't really say much else, it varies from sixth form to sixth form.

    What do you ultimately want to do in terms of uni/career?

    If there is a non A level course to facilitate what you wish to achieve I'd urge you to consider something like that instead. You can still get to uni with a btec and A levels aren't for everyone.

    If an AS year was hard to pass, it's likely that mashing AS and A2 all into one year is not realistic.*

    Ask them to put you on the waiting list. Within the first couple weeks of school bare students drop out.

    Try asking haringey sixth form aswell if they have any spaces. My friends sister enrolled there mid September last year after BSix did not enrol her and she got a place immediately so hopefully they do have spaces available 🙏🏽🙏🏽.
