Hello
I was supposed to sit my GCSEs earlier this year, but because of the Coronavirus, they were cancelled and I ended up with my predicted grades. The grades I ended up with weren't sufficient enough for me to study Maths and Physics A-Level.

I know that I'm the only person to blame, but I had hope as I was continuously improving throughout year 11 and with each mock I did, I got a higher grade. I was optimistic that by the time I sat my exams, I'd get the grade requirements.

I'm currently doing English, Psychology and Media. I'm kinda lost and don't really know what I wanna do after sixth form.

Is there any way around this? Or should I just pick a different career path?

Thank you

You can do courses with a foundation year if you don’t have the correct a levels to do a subject you want to do so maybe that’s something you could look into, it’ll add an extra year to your time at uni but at least you would be able to study the subject you want
Or you could resist maths and physics GCSEs this year and start a levels next year although this may be a little bit harder

I suggest resitting maths and physics. Then from there taking them for A levels. Its going to be difficult but if you get through this then it will show that you truly are committed to becoming an astrophysicist and I'm sure become a darn good one too

I think it’s best to take a foundation year, do great in these subjects and enjoy them then go to uni with a foundation year! That way you’ll be taught the physics and maths that you require for uni
