It is fair to say that this year’s A Level results day is like no other and that students’ results may not reflect the hard work they have put in or their true ability.
It may seem as though your two years of sheer hard work have been wasted – but they haven’t. No one can have studied a subject in depth for two years without having gained some knowledge. You know far more than you realise and the knowledge you already have will be the basis of achieving greater things if you decide to sit your A Level in October 2020.
If you have decided to take this route then the following information may be helpful:
Autumn A Level exams start on Monday 5th October and end Friday 23rd October.
The deadline for entries is 4th September and results will be Thursday 17th December.
Please do remember that you can also sit your A Level exams next summer! The best time for you depends on how well prepare you feel along with your future plans.
Please see below current autumn exam dates.
Once you feel able, think carefully and note down any areas of the course you found most difficult as it is likely to be these are as you will have struggled with in the exam. Refer to any course work you have and any feedback from your teachers. Note general study skills that you struggle with, such as organisation, essay structure remembering quotations, exam timing. Then, jot down any specific parts of the A Level exam paper which were difficult too.
If you choose to retake your A Level and not return to school, then taking a detailed look at your paper/s in question and comparing them with the Mark Scheme and Examiners Report can be a very useful exercise. An experienced tutor can really help here by going over the paper with you, identifying the areas of focus and putting together a plan of action.
Once you have outlined these areas the challenge is to start to work on them. It is sensible to focus on one area at a time as this will enable you to focus more clearly and not feel overwhelmed at the amount of study you need to do. An experinced tutor can give you one to one support and give your confidence a much-needed boost. Remember, you haven’t failed, be patient with yourself and give it another try – you’re sure to exceed your own expectations.
