Should I resit my CIE iGCSE ESL examination?

    This is a rather personal question, actually. ESL (0510) is the subject I had spent the most time studying, for about 6 straight months, and also one which I had invested the most money in. My results are 67/90 (B) in P2 and 38/40 (A), which is altogether an A, yet my teacher, one with respectable experience in the subject for 20 years, had predicted me an A*, bearing in mind that I spent 25+ hours a week studying it. Regardless of it being an ESL exam, should I finish what I started, or should I let it go, in order to focus on other studies? Please bear in mind that in my country, we need 8 O-level subjects and 1 A-level subject to qualify for university. I can think of nowhere else on the internet where my question would be of relevance.
    Oh, and sorry for the bad english *cries in the corner*
