Does anyone know anyone who resat alevels but failed everything the first time they did exams? Or do you know anyone with a U who resat? I think I failed everything this year. But I've never met anyone who's failed everything, like all 3 of their subjects. The only people who I've ever met that are resitting had got Bs and Cs and are aiming for As. I do biology chemistry and maths and I would love to get 3 As, is there any chance I will if I failed all three of them in the first place?? I'm planning on working my ass off starting the day I finish my last exam which is tomorrow. I think even when I'm relaxing over the Summer I will get some sort of anxiety attack that I'm not working and will be needing to work 24/7... Im so confused, please someone help me out

Yes in my school I have these friends they failed every single subject they were doing like all 3 As exams but they reset the exam their AS again together with their A2 exam so if you are doing A2 next year u can still continue and only reset the AS exams when its due and work hard. Do more past papers during the summer time

I resat my first year, probably could have went the full stretch and passed but I wasn’t happy with my subjects so decided to just botch my exams, have a crazy summer then come back in September to start over. It was the best decision I made however I wish I’d tried in the exams as I probably could have had 2 extra AS levels worth of UCAS points as I changed 2 of 3 subjects when I resat

To be honest, if you get UUU you would probably be better off starting Year 12 again and choosing 3 completely different subjects - the ones you were strongest at in GGSE or new ones

Ahh okays, I was thinking that too, and I was strongest at gcse english lit so probably shouldv taken that and i acc rlly miss it now too. But I also was really good at maths and it was always my favourite subject but now its my worst A-level. Due to what career I want to enter into, I think I still need Bio and Chem, but do u recon I can still get AAA when resitting?

That's the problem - I think it will be very difficult to go from failing subjects to getting AAA in them all in the space of a year. That's why I suggested starting fresh with 3 new subjects but it is up to you

Yes u can still reset cuz I have this friend and she got D in her Chemistry and she did again this year so u can do fast track A levels that's one year course or u can only teach yourself A2 stuff if u did well your AS then do the exam (units that u got bad grades)
