    I've been a stable student until my chronic illness took a toll on my life, resulting in my attendance plummeting in sync with my grades... My gcses are very soon and im struggling keeping up with revision. With my depression getting in the way too, i'm in a lot of pain and lacking motivation when at the same time I want to achieve as much as i can. It's quite a conflict. I was wondering if i could resit my gcses and have as long as a year to prepare for them? I wouldn't mind studying aside younger students, quite frankly that is the least of my worries. I've researched here and there but i don't really have definite answers. This has been stressing me out extensively. Any suggestions?

    Don’t worry if you don’t pass your exams health comes first. You can resit them in college. Depending on what your grades on you might get to do functional skills which is a lot easier.

    Your health is your first happiness so take care of yourself and discuss it with someone you trust and talk through your options because as much as your education is important, you can't excel if you aren't happy/well yourself. Find ways to not let depression get the better over you and i wish you the best of luck and we all love you because you are a strong person so take something from a negative situation and make it positive because it will only make you a stronger person x
