Questions about Re-doing Y12Watch
So, if I continue on to Year 13, I will most likely regret it my whole life, so I realised that I should stay another year and get the best possible grades at the end. I am very passionate about heavy intellectual thinking and argumentation to the point it makes me smile during writing essays. So what I want to do is continue my current A Level in to Y13, and stay for 2 more years doing 3 A levels in Y12, so in other words, I will have 4 A Levels at the end of Sixth form, and I’ll stay for 3 years. So now there is no going back, and I believe this is the best possible outcome for me. However, this does leave a few questions.
I intend to do English literature, History, and physcology and continue Religious Studies/Philosophy in to A2/Y13. I meet the GCSE requirements for English and Sociology, however History, I do not and here is why.
As I explained, during my GCSES I did not really attempt due to certain circumstances occurring during my GCSES, and there were some subjects I did REALLY bad in, History was one of them. I went in the exam like a fool and got one C and one D, my coursework removed a percentage of that C and moved it to a D, so if I had attempted and tried during my GCSES, my coursework would give me the overall grade of a C with this current performance, however because I didn’t care it was a D.
So what my mind set is that, I must do History at all costs, it’s one of the more challenging subjects and it requires critical thinking, both attributes which I possess, the subject itself is also good for law as it focuses on many events in the past and how those events led to the present. My Sixth form states that English is a great subject for history as it has the skill of essay writing, and I do have both literature and language, on top of that I would have an A in A Level Religious Studies which also requires heavy essay writing, however my only issue is that D in GCSE history. My Sixth form has not stated a requirement for History, however most students studying it have done GCSE History, however, all students in my Religious Studies class have done Religious Studies GCSE and I haven’t and yet I am still performing well.
I know my foolish acts have led me to this moment; however I believe I can change if I get given the chance. So my question is, If I explain this situation to my Sixth Form, will this be a valid reason? There are many people who have re-done Y12 and done subjects in A2 or AS alongside each other. Will I be able to do A Level History and continue Religious studies? Thanks.
