I'm sorry to hear that,

There are so many more opportunities out there for you, have you thought of doing a BTEC or an apprenticeship perhaps? Just because you gained bad results, doesn't mean its the end! It's your own personal best remember.

What were your plans for after GCSEs?

Honestly it’s fine. Things like this happen. Accept it and take it as motivation to work way harder !!

So sorry to hear that, I can understand how you’re feeling. What A-levels/BTEC’s have you chosen?
damn
you can still do it, usually require a minimum of grade 5+ at many colleges / sixth-form to go on an A Level course just make sure you work harder this time around if possible as the workload is far greater & much more difficult.

I don't think i'm going to do a-levels anymore which is annoying, I might do btecs. I passed everything but my grades were too low...

Unfortunately I can’t get on to my desired A-levels
do you mind me asking what a levels you’d like to take and what career you’d like in the future?

Chemistry, biology & psychology or economics
for medicine you’d want to drop psychology as many unis just don’t accept it dont know reasoning. for pharmacology maths would be a better subject instead of psychology. how many GCSEs do you have and at what grade? e.g. (5GCSES 1A 2B 3C).

5 GCSEs 2Bs & 3Cs
the 3C’s were they 5s or 4s? many universities count a grade 5 & 6 as ‘B’
