unfortunately for dentistry they are basically fails bc you need at least B's.


Yes but they are NOT failing grades - for you they aren't much use but for others they'll get on the course they want,

I did read the OP but you are being unkind to thousands of students who can use a grade D - they did not FAIL their A levels and nor will you if you get those grades.

There are many options - resits for example but you need to sort out the issues that have led you to underachieve,
Just do your best and also apply for extenuating circumstances. Worst comes to worst you resit. But don’t stress about that until you have evidence of your grades on results day

my guy you've lost it fr. how am I being unkind ffs. I am talking about my unique situation not talking for anyone else don't you understand this. once again never said if anyone achieves D's they have failed ofc they haven't. but for dentistry D's are not good enough can't believe I am having to repeat myself. anyways yes thank you I will sort out my issues.
