    I am feeling very stressful and depressed.A situation has arose where understandardly a Sixth Form has rejected me on the basis of i failed to get a Grade 4 in Maths in June.I got a 3 but i was suffering with so many problems back then,that i know if i get a Second Chance i can pass it as i will Actually REVISE and put 100% effort in.This is the only problem,how do i beg the Sixth Form to let me retake and let me in. I dont know what i'll do with my life if i cant get in.All the other Colleges are too far away or Have really bad reputations in regard to students behaviour.HOW do i beg them to let me in and give me a shot at a retake ?

    Ask your secondary schools' tutor/nurse/maths teacher or whatever to write them a letter of extenuating circumstances for why you failed.

    You mean the secondary school disappeared or all human contact is lost?

    You know you can walk yourself there and ask at the reception, right?

    They dont have any Medical Evidence to show that i failed GCSE Maths because of this.Their reply would be,'should've worked harder' which is true

    With no medical evidence the secondary school cannot do much to help. If you organise to resit the subject and prove it to the sixth form they may let you in. Do the sixth form not offer a resit?

    The reason why the sixth form can’t let you in is because everyone as of 2017 has to leave education with a grade 4 in GCSE Maths.

    Given i am a 'External Student' and not one of their own,i dont think they are inclined to waste their money on 1 student.What do i do then,this is the only Sixth Form which is suitable,can i lie about the grade and say i made a mistake or can i beg them more in the hope they let me in and retake it,i will be happy to cover the cost

    no because you will have to show the certificate.

    retake, and reapply.

    Ask them then.

    Or find an alternative exam centre that accepts external students. Or ask your original school.

    Lying won’t work as I know a few people who did that and failed completely trying to do so. They check by looking at your certificates against what you put. Lying will make it worse.

    I would ask them if you could pay for the retake, I believe you have to if you do so early. For example I retook my English in November, I paid about £70 to do it early instead of having to waste the year. The same would apply for maths or at least be similar. Maybe a private tutor would help your case to the sixth form.

    I don’t know what your parents think or if you want to involve them but having one of them with you to back you up or guarantee payment will help.

    It might be best to go to another sixth form even if they are bad, and just ask if they can let you retake maths as thats what some sixth forms usually do. I'm suprised they won't let you, mines an outstanding sixth form but they still accept some people with fails in maths. Which sixth form is it?
