Should I retake o level as private candidate? URGENT!

PLEASE HELP! I just got my o level results. What should I do?

Math d7
English c5
Chinese b3
Combined humanities (geog/ss) c5
Combined sciences (bio/chem) d7
Principles of account c5

I知 A Sec 5 and I know that I did not have my best last year hence result especially math. I think I screwed up my English listening and compo. should I retake ( work extremely hard and have Tution ) my olevel math, English and principles of account to try to get b3 or below to go to MI. (L1b4: 20 and below) Or take a poly course that I don稚 want and do well and try to go to a Uni to take humanities/ literature degree because I知 really interested in arts.

Hi,
Going to poly with a course you do not wish to take (maybe arts and humanities related) or retaking O levels are both viable options.

You need to decide for yourself.

If you were to retake O levels, would you do much better?

If you were to go to poly in Apr, which courses do you qualify?

All the best.

Why don't you list here some poly courses here that you have a realistic chance of getting into?

With your maths grade like this, I'm not even sure if you can graduate from poly engineering courses. And if you can, whether it will be enough for you to enter uni.

If you retake, you bloody well make sure you can do better. Talk is cheap.

If you like the course, then go for it.
If you do not like the course, then retake your O levels or go ITE.
ITE has improved a lot.
