How do i sort this stupid situation?! - January 25th 2010, 06:38 PM

Right then.
So im 17, in my first year of 6th form. Was doing music tech, RE, performing arts and spanish for my AS levels. Dropped music tech because it was ridiculously hard and not what i expected.
So im stuck with spanish, RE and performing arts.
Im good as spanish, or so i thought? I got a B at GCSE level. But AS level is soo hard, and the work is really getting ontop of me, and my teachers arnt terribly helpful and its really getting me down.
I cant drop it because im already only on 3 exams rather than 4.
Been to see loads of teachers about the spanish problem, but nothings really been done and now were getting in trouble from the teachers because according to them we arnt trying hard enough, even though weve tried as hard as possible to do the work and deal with any problems. And they refuse to help the situation.
So now im looking at my options for what to do next, with the entire situation.
Im looking to do either event or tourism management in Uni.
Researched into where i can go etc and found some places which would be good.
Only problem is I only got a D on my maths GCSE. And i need a C for most places.
The date has already past for re-sitting the exam in my 6th form. So im looking into gettin a tutor etc so i can get my C and get into the Uni i want okay. But i dont know where i can do the exam because the chance to do it in school is gone.
Help pleaseee!!!! Never been so stressed out in my life!!!!

Well firstly the easy one, if you are only in your first year... retake the maths gcse at your college in the second year.
That way that should be sorted.

Im going to assume that RE and performing arts are going well as you didnt mention a problem with them.

The way to fix spanish is to either work extra extra hard. Retake As level as well as taking A2 level exams and coursework in the second year. (Remember that youll probably have to pay for retakes)

Or you can drop spanish and take another As level in the second year.
That way you will leave with 2 A-levels and 1 As-level.
Or you can work to at least pass the Spanish As-level, drop it and take another As level in the second year and leave with 2 A-levels and 2 As-levels.

As you have found out what you want to do, check out how many UCAS points you will need, so you know he minimum grades and minimum number of subjects you will need. It should help you make a decision.

Remember you can look at doing foundation degrees in the subject you want before beginning your degree. Foundation degrees are normally 1 year and equivalent to having a-levels.
So even if you fail all a-levels you can do this, and if you pass get onto your chosen degree course (some universities will even put you straight onto the second year of the degree if you pass the foundation degree with distinction)

I know its a long reply, but its because you have sooo many options. You really do, Ive only named a few obvious ones!
(I know, Ive been through it myself, people act like its the end of the world if you dont pass As-levels but there are so many ways to fix it and get round it)
Dony worry and good luck with it all.
I hoped I helped and if you have more questions, ask

And if you have found someone thats willing to help you get everything sorted then thats even better.
And if it doesnt get sorted properly remember to go back and talk to the 6th form head again
Fingers crossed for you
