What grades did you get?
What do you need?
Why do you think you failed?
What course or uni were you aiming for?

Mainly social disadvantages e.g. having to watch all of the friends that you have in your year graduate before you and having to make new friends in another year. That’s the reason why hardly anyone in my school is willing to retake the year anyway

If that's the reason why, then you're all very immature.

Education > friends

That’s true, I personally would choose to stay on but as I put school first I’m less likely to fail. There’s a correlation there, as putting social life before schoolwork seems to cause a lot of these people to fail AS in the first place (not everyone but a good number)

I'm actually glad you take your priorities seriously, it'll do you well in the future.
