    Hey guys my school wont let me do A2 in Biology and Economics as I didn't get a minimum of a D. However I want to do those subjects for A-level. Is it possible for me to retake year 12 in another school and start again? Will they let me? Any advice much appreciated.

    i got AABB in my AS results and i got the Bs for maths and chemistry - 221/300 and 224/300 do you think its is possible for me to improve them to an A next year without doing any resits? i really need some advice can someone please help me and im planning to study medicine.
    It is possible, but it will be hard. A2s are a fair bit harder than AS levels, so you'll need to work very hard. I'd suggest retaking a couple with your A2s tbh.

    It is possible to retake Year 12, yes, but different schools will have different policies.

    Have you tried asking the universities concerned how they would view your results?

    Shouting at A level students on TSR isn't likely to get you an answer.

    I took initiative and e-mailed the admissions team of the universities yesterday. I think they gave me an "automatic" e-mail ; talked about how busy they were as it was results day and said they would get back to me shortly. No reply!

    PS - sorry for my triggered caps lock

    It's been a journey... I appreciate everyone who I've connected with over the past 60 or so days leading up to results day, you've all been a massive help. I'd also like to thank all of the mods @pq and the rest who gave up their time to reassure us! Onwards and upwards!
