    OP, I am amazed at how rude some people are being! It's a good decision - it gives you time to focus on your other exams. Only YOU can know what grade you were going to get. As it was a resit, I imagine you wanted to focus on your first-time exams, what's the point of taking the exam if you're not going to get a higher grade than before? That's just as much a waste of money as withdrawing!

    I knew from about 7 past papers that I was going to get a much lower grade than before, and I used that time to revise for the exams that were going to affect whether or not I got into uni.

    I just completely disagree with the "I'll go for the resit"-attitude.

    And you say only OP would know the grade he/she was going to get, but in fact NOBODY would know (for certain) that grade.

    It's pretty easy to with maths - base it on what you most often get in past papers.

    I only entered for the resit on the off chance that any unis wanted me to improve my AS grade (I'm not taking it to A2). So far none have cared about it. I think withdrawing from a first-time exam wouldn't be a great idea (unless there are exceptional circumstances), but with withdrawing from a resit, the only person it affects is you, as your grade doesn't improve.

    meh I got drunk the night before a big Uni exam without revision and got in the 90s by complete fluke.

    Luck does exist....if you don't try you never know. I wouldn't waste my money

    I withdrew from my C2 exam earlier this month, which was a resit. I went into school, told the exams officer I wanted to be withdrawn and then had to sign a piece of paper saying that. It's really easy. I may or may not sit it in the summer, depends on whether any unis ask for it!
    Thats what I did - maths was my AS though.
