    this sounds like a plan, thank you!



    i know i will try my best because I'm actually scared that i will mess up my future omg
    and yeah I'm retaking 1 AS exam to go from a D to B. and i dropped the E so its fine

    im ok with putting down AS because they aren't that bad

    and no i think (and hope!) youre wrong. they agreed last month that current year 13 students will have the opportunity to resit their A2/AS exams in summer 2017 which will be the last sitting. but thats as a private candidate of course

    and thanks i will look more into adjustment as well
    I don't think you can retake the old AS spec next year, unless you're talking about retaking this year?

    I'm actually really happy about that because I actually thought it was passing/ or death this year with AS re-sits
