    basically I began studying 3 A-levels my main passion being within photography. During my A2 in photography I decided to begin a national diploma in fashion and design whilst continuing with my photography A-level.
    In my AS in photography I got a B but during my exam at A2 I got a D averaging my overall grade down to a C.
    I have the chance to re-sit my exam, giving I do well I could boost my grade up to a B.
    I asked my Fashion tutor if she would mind me re-sitting, but she said the Final Major project we are doing now is worth 5 distinctions and doesn’t want me to let myself down by putting myself under too much pressure. However I feel that if I manage my time correctly unlike my previous year I could pull it off but I’m not too sure if I should risk it?
    Have any of you guys done this and succeeded?

    re-sit it. I honestly don't see how this teacher can say it will affect her course dramitcally, as starting her course affected your photography grade in first place by sounds of it.
