    Ahhhh this is a common issue. As kids get older they feel like a burden on their parent's finances.

    How old are you? Are you able to get a part time job anytime soon?

    If not. Tell them that you didn't do well in the previous one and just wanted a second chance. And if you worked hard and prepared for it then they would be happy to help. ^-^ we forget that they have been paying for things all our lives. Don't be embarrassed or shy to ask your own parents.

    Mate, sorry to say but this is one of those occasions where you will just have to swallow your pride and ask them.
    Unless you have some money stashed away.
