    I don't understand why everyone is saying to retake AS Levels when they don't even count towards the full A Level, lol.

    You'd probably have to somehow convince your teachers to give you a really good predicted grade and a good reference clearly explaining why they predicted you so highly. Strong GCSE grades could probably help you out there.

    You also have the other option of taking a gap year and applying with your real A Level grades the following application cycle, if you really did flunk your exam and can't convince your teachers.

    However, you never know. You could be in for a good surprise on results day...

    and I did AQA Chemistry as well, it was horrible this year :/
    Thanks, I'll definitely take that on board!

    From what I've read most uni's wont be looking at the AS grades this year, just your predicted grades and the other parts of your application e.g GCSE, statement ect. So make sure you've got good predicted grades and you should be fine.
    that sounds good. does that mean im in the clear with my grade B in AS Chem

    it wont. It should be used to make your predicted grades. i got AAB.
    Im being predicted A*AA since i scored over 90 in maths. A in bio because i scraped it, and an A in Chem because i scored a high B. Thats how my AS was being used.
