i've missed an insane amount of school this year and last year ,can i still pass my gcse's? i need five fours including english language and music. i also am very bad at exams and find it very hard to focus.
Hoping I can offer some support with this one!
First thing I would advise is that you speak with your schools examination officer about applying for extenuating circumstances due to your illness and any support that can be put in place during your exams to support you such as extra time.
I'm going to mirror a lot of the advice you've already been given here, but it is vital that you speak with your subject teachers to try and obtain the course content that you have missed, ask if there will be any revision classes being put on after school that you can attend and if you are able to consider a private tutor look into this as soon as possible.
Hopefully you will have all the materials you need to revise, make sure you set out a clear revision schedule that is realistic for you making sure you have plenty of time for each subject and also yourself to relax.
Find a revision technique that works for you whether that's having music in the background, cue cards, practicing out loud or being tested on what you have revised with friends and family.
If you are able to put in the revision and time, you may be able to achieve the grades you need. If you don't please know that you're not alone with planning what to do next which is what we are here for.
Good luck with everything and if you would like further support don't hesitate to get in touch or you can chat online with a careers adviser through our website - http://bit.ly/2GkrcXU
