    I'm sitting 3 A levels, one of which is Further Maths.
    To stay at my sixth form next year I need at least a B in Further to carry it onto A2. I think I've struggled to get that ( I haven't sat all of my AS exams yet btw)
    I need help on how to get top UMS in S1 and M1.
    I'm starting to think about my next steps, what do I do if I don't get back in for Year 13. I want to go to uni and study Economics/Economics&Finance but without my A levels, I'll probably struggle.
    Further Maths is my real issue, I'm doing fine in my other two subjects but even if I was to repeat Year 12, it would be so hard watching my friends leave whilst I have another year. Besides that,every A level will be on the new two year linear spec.

    So any advice or thoughts would be most welcome, thank you.

    Cant you just carry furthermaths to A2 and repeat modules, or you could drop further maths and do an a level in 1 year?

    If my grade wasn't good enough then they wouldn't allow me to carry it to A2 and repeating modules would make it harder on top of A2 modules. I was thinking about an A level in one year but I wouldn't have a predicted grade since I didn't do a Year 12 mock and that's even IF they'll allow me to do that.
