    So guys I’m at a college, year 12 student. So recently we had these little assessments. I do maths physics and geography. I got B, E and U. I know it’s not good but come on it takes time to do well in a levels. I had to have a meeting other day and was told that I had to redo the geography test and I did and got a U again. However the second test i did was just 1 question- 20 mark. It’s an essay question. We haven’t started essay questions in class. This was done purposely for me to fail and drop the subject. Now I’ve had a meeting today and being forced to do a BTEc and I’ll still be able to keep maths but having to drop physics and geography. I will be doing btec applied science and sports like??? This is not fair. I can do a levels and 6 weeks isn’t enough to determine that I can’t do it. I want to go to a good uni and do civil engineering. I either go to a another college or start btecs at my current college. I Don’t want to do this as i really like the place and the people in it are very friendly. I’ve already had a gap year so it’s my last 2 years in education. I want to do well PLEASE HELP ME.
