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.

You've already posted this!! So either you're in a real panic or just really bored. Either way, the first load of replies were good, so just go back to them!

don't be embarrassed about it ! wait until results day as you never know, the grade boundaries could be low. if you did fail, retaking at 6th form is nothing to worry about, don't stress and good luck with whatever happens

Would it be embarrassing to get into the uni that you want after having worked hard and retaken English? No? Well, there's your answer.

6 is perfectly fine. You can just explain that you are aiming high for uni and need a really good grade to get in. Job done.
