So I just got my PPE grades back that'll be used for my predicted grades and I know I can do way better than what I got I did really really really really really bad on it cuz I was unprepared, I really wanna do medicine but these grades won't get me even at the lowest entry requirements. So is there anyway I could convince my teachers specifically the head of science to allow re-sits

Have you tried appealing? Loads of teachers in our school say a majority of people who apply, get the grades they need if they need it for a specific course they want to do. It would save you from resitting too.

Appealing won't help cuz my grades are that bad that's why I want to re-sit😔

Probably not - why should they give themselves more work just because you were unprepared? They either have to go to the trouble of finding a new exam, supervising it and then marking it - or they do the same with the exam you've already taken and the results won't be valid. Your mock grades don't have to be your predictions. If you put in maximum effort from now then they may increase your predicted grades as these won't go to UCAS until the Autumn.

If it's school policy not to allow resits then there's no convincing to be done.

Your best approach would be to speak to the relevant teacher, "I was disappointed with my performance here, what can I do to strengthen my predicted grade?".

Worst comes to worst you could take a gap year and ensure you get the grades you need in your real a levels and could use them to apply in the autumn 2022

Your absolutely right about this. I was able to convince my chemistry teacher so I have a re-sit on Thursday which I am now preparing for
