    Hey guys I just got my AS'S back and didn't do as well as I hoped:
    A in biology
    B in Maths (one Mark from an A so probably remarking if I drop it)
    B in RS (5 marks from an A)
    C in chemistry ( 7 marks from a B)

    I was hoping for AAAA as I want to do human sciences at Oxford.

    I did want to drop maths as although I'm okay at it I don't really enjoy it. So I was thinking to retake one of my chemistry exams (in which I got a D which brought my grade down-I got an A in the other exam and B in the practical work.)
    So I wanted to ask would it be easier, do you think, for me to retake the chem exam and end up with an A in chem, or carry on with Maths and get an A?
    Btw I know where I went wrong and know I am capable of getting the grades I'm just wondering which is easier to get an A in-maths or chemistry as I don't need any particular subjects for human sciences.

    Sorry for the really long post and thanks for the help.
    I also got ABBC at AS level (Bio, Chem, Maths and English respectively). I had originally wanted to drop maths, but my english was literally on the C/D border so I had to drop that instead. I also had one crappy maths module (in your case, chemistry) and it was MUCH eaiser to redo that one module rather than to bring up an entire english grade.

    This year, after some retakes, I got AAA in my A2 exams.

    I know nothing about medicine, but I got two dental interviews with ABBC. (That being said, the A was in biology, so I'm not sure in your case.) Glasgow (and more recently, Dundee now) require ABB grades for dentistry. If you score over 710 in the UKCAT, kings will also invite you to an interview - as long as you have a kick-ass personal statement, but expect their offer to be AAA.

    Just don't apply to universities that don't consider the UKCAT, and don't apply to Manchester/Newcastle.

    I believe its your highest 3 A2 modules.. if they average 90 UMS or above you get an A* (providing you have over 480 UMS in total )

    Well done!
    But like do you think A2 Maths or chemistry is easier? Do you think its possible to retake a module and go from high C to an A? Like for someone who was getting sick of C2 and the amount of time you have to practice maths, I really don't want to do maths but idk if doing chemistry is realistic for me.
    Thanks for the advice

    I got a B in maths AS and a C in chemistry AS after getting a D in unit 2, but I wanted to drop maths. I knew I'd done as well as I could im maths, and was sure I could improve my chemistry, so despite being advised otherwise I dropped maths. I resat my D and came out with an A in Chemistry A2 - with hard work it's possible :awesome:

    Imo, A2 maths is infinitely easier. For chemistry, first you have to learn all of the content in the syllabus, and then you have to learn how to answer questions in the exam. In maths, the two are pretty much synonymous. I actually retook a C2 module - went fom the D/C border to an A grade, so yes, it is possible!

    It's important that you choose subjects you enjoy for A2, otherwise you will get a terrible grade at the end. If you enjoy chemistry, and you are willing to put in the work and effort towards it, then of course it is realistic!
