    So we're half way through the courses and I've managed my time wrong all through high school nevermind sixth form. My initial options were computing and psychology A levels and chemistry AS. Now it's to a point where I'm asked to drop computing, try not to fail chemistry and smash psychology. I want to do computer science at university and I need 2 full A levels and 112 UCAS for it.
    Anyway there's around 12 weeks before AS levels. I'm well behind in chemistry and computing due to absences but do you think I can pull it back? What do I do..?

    Half way through? You mean halfway through year 12?

    Just try your best. Its a bit worrying yu wnat to do CS at degree level and thats the one you are failing?

    You have P under control so you have to see if you can rescue Chem or take a fresh A level in year 13, then do it in a year.

    Your alternative is to redo year 12. Its much easier to get 112 with 3 A levels than 2. It sounds to be much more realistic as well.

    you have time!
    if your half way through year 12, revise as you learn things in school, start with taking notes from the textbook and adding extra things on your notes that you learnt from class. Then start exam prep on what you are learning curently.
    You have time- I know people that have gone from a U to an A* within a month by being focused
    BE FOCUSED ORGANISED AND DETERMINED.
    DONT SLACK
    and also take breaks, your not an academic robot; your a human.

    I'm not saying it's a good idea but I finished year 12 with CDE and finished year 13 with D*BC

    If ur serious about getting to a good uni, stop everything and immerse yourself into your books. yes, you got 3 months, but time will fly. Make a study timetable now and follow it strictly; less nights out, less time for fun, give up that console/tv/phone for a bit and focus all your resources into your a-levels.

    Hi there,

    Have you considered getting a tutor to help you get back on track after your absences? It can be hard to make progress when you've perhaps missed some crucial earlier elements, and a tutor can help identify and improve those areas where you're struggling.

    If you're interested, do have a look at the links below.

    There are also a lot of free advice articles on these subjects, written by tutors, that you might find helpful.

    Good luck!
