    I got BCC for math,chem and bio. honestly i think i did about 10% work , mainly because i switched schools, my previous school hadn't started teaching AS and was very bad at teaching London AL so i moved. and i faced some bullying as well so when i moved i tried too hard to fit in and make friends that i completely neglected my work. and my new school had completed 50% of the syllabus so i had to self study to cover up that bit of work. after all that effort to fit in, i made friends but it was at the cost of my AS results and all my friends did a lot better than me.
    i have never regretted something more in my life and i cant even imagine what i was thinking.
    i got 8A*s and 1B for my gcse's btw.
    and i am also hoping to apply for the MBBS program at Melaka-Manipal UNI twin program which has an entry requirement of 3 Cs.
    i want some advice on if i should resit all my papers (which i dont want to do) or if i will be able to get at least get 2A's and a B for A2 even though i didn't do well for AS( and without resits). i was thinking of not resitting because my results for AS are within the required grades for the uni that i have selected. if i put in a lot of work would i be able to make it or is it an impossible aim?
    also what are the advantages i would have if i resit? and also if manage to do well in A2 and also get into uni would my bad AS results affect my studies at uni?
    please help i am desperate :'(
