My teachers have said that they have changed the rules regarding resits so you can do as many as you want.

What, again?! When I did my A levels they'd just changed it to the 'one resit only' rule in the first place! And I took AS two years ago...

I doubt the school will like it if you pull out at the last minute because I think they have to pay for the exam, but I guess it's worth a try if you're really that worried.

Good news: As of Jan this year, candidates are allowed unlimited resits.

I paid for the resits so hopefully they wont try and use that as a reason lol. Its just I dont wanna do them cause I will do much worse than before therefore there is no point at all doing them, not to mention they are depressing I wouldnt just not turn up cause then they would think wtf am I doing.

I do much better in June

Lasts years Jan results - BCEE
Last years June results (each modual) - AABBBBBD
