    Hi all,
    Im having a slight nervous breakdown..
    I did resits in Jan and got two full a levels with an A and B, so chuffed about them!
    But the other two a levels i completely messed up..
    im not sure how to work out what grades they are, but it certainly doesnt look good..
    64/120
    54/80
    50/100
    59/90

    *screams* aaaah should i retake in the summer???

    depends what you want to do and therefore wat grades you need. also think about why u failed them. if retaking then leaves u with too little time to get decent grades in ur other exams (if u hav any). those results arent terrible if u wana come out with c's .. and if u did well in ur summer exams u cud end up combining good scores and stil come out with b's. so ultimately decide what u want realisticly and then take it from there!

    Yeah I reckon so... Or if you're not applying for a 2008 start for Uni, then you could retake them next January which is what I'm doing. I haven't applied to uni yet so I'm gonna use next year to sort out any resits rather than bombard myself with them in the summer.

    Don't worry, I got AAAB in AS levels and this January I got AAC (C was four marks above a D!!!) and I have never got below a B in an exam before, and even then I've only ad one B ever, so it was a shock.. Just thank God for resits!!

    Well out of all the unis i applied to the lowest offer is ABB, i really dont know what happened im in a state of shock to be honest! I was so happy I got the A and B, i guess I'll just have to retake them. Maybe i piled on too much I ended up doing 7 exams in January

    Same here, I was expected to get AABB in my first Jan AS exams and it comes out ACCD. Absolutely shocked!!! I wish I can apply PPE in York, but now, dream's over. I think you feel upset especially your mates who didn't work as hard as you did came out with 2 grades above you. :mad: Sigh...

    PS. Does anyone know is it better to retake in June? So your predicted grade in September will be higher (if I improve)
