    So I got my AS results and I was happy with
    Biology - A
    English Literature- B

    But i got a C in chemistry. I want to retake the exam but my teachers have advised me to retake in A2 instead. My issue is that i only have 3 exams for may/june anyway.

    BY2,F322 and my spanish resit so should i disregard what they've said and take it anyway or concentrate on getting good grades in the 3 exams i have for may/june?

    Retake it if you want to learn all the stuff again.
    If you think you can make up the marks with your other exams, then I wouldn't bother just try extra hard as retakes can have a huge impact on your other exams
