resits

hey guys unfortunately I ended up not performing well in my a levels and I think the best option for me is to retake all of them. I honestly found sixth form extremely draining and don't want to go back to my sixth form to do another year and feel a fresh start is much better. But I'm having trouble finding a place I can retake my a levels possibly as a private candidate, I wouldn't mind going to another school and even doing my lessons there. But I just need the cheapest option really to find a way to resit a levels. Does anyone know where I can find a cheap centre to retake, if I cant I'll just go back to my old school and hope the year just goes fast.

what city are you in? i know a centre that everyone from my college goes to bc my college doesn't allow resits, and it is cheaper than alot of places. resitting a levels sounds like torture to me and u did mention you found sixth form draining. have u tried finding a course through clearing? so many people i know performed not well at all but ended up still getting into uni as they were really lenient. hopefully it all works out for you :smile:

Hi, i am retaking my A- levels aswell and same the thought of going back to my college is awful never mind having to relearn all of the spec from my a levels all over again. Try to remain calm and have more of a THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO DO mindset rather than overthinking about extraneous stuff cuz your goal is after all to improve your grades, even if that means you have to go back to your college.
In Manchester check out Macclesfield tutorial college.
