What should I do

    • Thread Starter

    I got my results back on a Test I took in class and it wasn't good. I've been advised to take BETC rather than A level however If I do it overlaps with one of my other subjects and I don't want to change that. I think I could do A level and I think it was just a bad test.

    Any advice would help thanks

    if you think you should stick at it - stick at it. it was just a bad grade, right? especially if you think so; ;; overall, if it was just one test (and if you can prove that to your teachers by doing better in the next test), then you should be okay. only you know your own capabilities. it's you who has to do alevels, not your teachers. if you think the alevel is better for you and not the btec, do the alevel.
