    I don't know my predicted grades, but to ask a general question, do people generally get higher grades at A level overall than they did when they sat ASs the first time. I.e are my final a level grades likely to be higher or lower once i've resat and done A2 modules than my AS grades last year?

    If you do better in the resits, which you should do since you're now at A2 standard, and work just as hard, if not harder, at A2 as you did at AS, I don't see why not. Obviously A2 modules are harder though, so you may still end up with the same grades from AS, but you shouldn't go down.

    I went down a grade in one subject, stayed the same in another and went up 2 grades with another! :rolleyes:
