    I am currently in year eleven, in a fairly good school out of the country. We moved due to my dad's work, all the way from London. Now that I am about to enter sixth form, a decision was made, I am going to move. Here's the situation:

    My dad will continue working here while my mum, my sister, my brother and I will go to the UK for our education. During the year, my mum will have to go visit my dad from time to time due to some regulations and stuff from the company. This means my siblings and I will have to board perhaps a total of one to two months in a year. That's no problem of course.

    The problem is while I was searching for boarding/day schools I realised a lot of them demand outstanding grades. I am generally a good student, however, during year ten I fell into a very bad sea of depression, which destroyed all motivation and gave me constant anxiety. This led to me missing school frequently(my attendance was barely 70%), having panic attacks during classes, and a very numb feeling that made me want to not give two poops about anything. Because of this, my year ten exams went as follows: Physics C, Biology B, Chemistry C, Psychology E, History E/F, Computer Science D, Maths B, English Lang A*, English Lit A.

    Although English was okay(mainly due to a last minute wave of motivation the day before my English Exams) the rest of my subjects don't even cross the line of acceptance when it comes to the schools I want to go to. This year, I am still affected by my depression, however, I am slowly inching up my grades, and hoping for A and A* in my finals. I truly do believe I can do it if I put all my effort into it.

    Now the thing that's eating me inside is the fact that in order to get a chance of admission, I must submit my reports now. I believe my year ten grades are very, extremely, horrifically, disgustingly embarrassing. And most probably not enough to even give me a minute chance of admission.

    I wanted to ask, can I wait until my year 11 mocks and send those in as my report, or will I have to go forward with it now? And if so, what are the odds of me being accepted considering I do well on my enterance exams and finals?
