I have just got back my biology December mock and I got a U grade, I find it very hard but I am expecting better grades in my other 2 a-level subjects. Do you think I will get kicked out of college as I failed this exam and because I can't drop the subject as i am only doing 3 a-levels already? Some people have been kicked out before but this is my first mock.

I wouldn't say so. This is your second year in college, right? Because if it is, then they really can't because your first results in AS met the entry requirements.

this is my first year I've been there 3 months or so, my attendance and effort in class is good though and other subjects, just biology letting me down! but college say it's too late to change subject now

Oh that's annoyingly. They're supposed to let you revise over Christmas for the mocks.
Oh well, I don't thinking they'll kick you out. They'll probably just keep assessing you and monitor your performance. If you don't improve they might not enter you for the exam for that subject. Your other ALevels should hopefully be safe. The only way to know for sure is to speak to your teacher about it.

Yeah, they can't really kick you out. You can kicked out of subjects but that's only if you don't meet the requirements which is a D to pass onto A-Levels (usually). If you're a major concern though and you're doing terrible on all your subjects which clearly you're not then they would perhaps consider this.

As long as your attendance is good and your showing interest in lessons there is no reason to kick you out. Some people have bad days. It may be a good idea to show your tutors that you are interested in what you're studying and determined to improve your grades. Ask them how you can improve and if you have any worries talk to somebody about it.

I'm on the same boat where I am failing Biology but doing really well in Maths and Chemistry. I'm going to get a personal tutor and try extremely hard for my mocks in Jan and pray everything turns out ok.
You won't get kicked out but they might phone your parents about the problem. The problem is most people think all you have to do for Biology is revise but you'll barely pass if that's all you do. Try doing past papers and mastering different types of questions such as explain questions since most people find those difficult.
