Guys I think I have failed English Language. Most likely I have failed. Do you think I should be embarrassed about it? I really wanted to go to my own school sixth form but I don’t want to be judged. In my year a lot of people know that I studied a lot and that I am smart.
But like 2 or 3 once said that I study a lot but I am not smart which is true. I know its my reality but don’t want to be going through that until november. I don’t want to be judged about it.

If I go to another school if I do resits then people will just know me being dumb and it will be so hard to get my reputation back.

I am literally in such a dilemma.

I am thinking of making up an excuse. Like the UNI I want to get in I need a 7, but got a 6.

Any better excuses let me know.

Here are the grades I think I am gonna get:

English Language - ¾
English Literature - 6/7
Maths - 8/9
Biology - ⅞
Chemistry - ⅚
Physics - ⅚
Computer Science - 6/7
Spanish - 6/7
Geography - ⅚

English Language is such an outlier. I’m embarrassed.

If you're asking TSR, it means you're worried about societal expectations. No one will ask you for your grades except some universities and employers.

Some tough unis may only accept your first result and so there's not much you can do except wait for this result to come. However, if you redo it, some unis may accept the second result. This is the research you need to be doing.

Don't make excuses, just take what you've been given and learn from it.
