    I'm really sorry that this happened to you It's too late now, (and fingers crossed it doesn't happen again), but in the future you may be able to apply for mitigating circumstances consideration to slightly increase your grades.

    Retaking sounds like a good idea, have you found a place where you can do it?

    I hope things get sorted out for you soon
    Yes I was able to find a place.. I really need 3 Bs do you have any advice on how I can make that possible?

    Evaluate the way you worked this year; did you do enough revision? Were you using techniques that actually helped you? Next year make sure you start your revision early and try out a variety of revision methods. Reading from textbooks is useless for most people; make concise notes on index cards, make flash cards to test yourself, draw posters with a summary with each unit. Revise with friends as well as by yourself. It goes without saying as well that past papers are your new best friend

    Yes. The exam timetables are already published for next year and all the legacy units are still available (although I imagine finding anywhere to accept you for sciences Units 3 or 6 is going to be very difficult and/or expensive.

    If you've completed the A level then I'd consider re-sitting some of the AS units as they are easier than A2.
