    So, basically...
    I want to do biology next year
    And I'm retaking maths and also science.
    From September to oct, I was doing badly on my higher exams for maths.
    E for one exam
    U on another
    I did no revision, my fault.
    But I was being tutored by this amazing girl and she helped me get from a D to an A in maths. She is the only person who I ever understood In maths. My college didn't tell me that my attendence would affect the decision if I'm doing higher or foundation. They didn't even tell me the exams we were doing were going to determine if I was doing higher or not. They weren't even the real mocks. They were practice papers. And now I'm being Forced to do foundation maths
    It sucks because I want to do bio next year
    And In order for me to do bio, I have to get at least a B for maths. And I can't get that with a foundation. My degree in nursing only needs a C or higher but I want to get a B to do biology. I begged them to give me another chance to show them I can do it but they refused. Told them I would improve my attendence and it had already improved. Still they refused.

    I'm doing a subject at college that I'm not planning to do next year
    I just picked it as a back up so I can focus on my GCSEs more. It's a pretty easy subject with a low workload.

    Shall I just quit college and do private exams?
    I'm currently doing private exams for science and getting B's. So shall I do the same for maths? It's like £500 all together but it's worth it.
    Shall I do it or just stick to foundation and carry on with college?
