so i've failed one regents, which i can't seem to pass. i've taken it twice already, and i'm going to take it once again in june, but it feels like it's impossible for me to pass.
will this prevent me from graduating? or can i get, what i've heard, a local diploma? and would colleges rescind me for doing so?
also, why are people putting in the effort to get an advanced regents diploma if the type of high school diploma doesn't matter in the long run?
