    Sorry if this has been posted before i have a feeling it has...

    The story:

    I am halfway through my AS Levels,

    In the January exams i got an A in Biology and Psychology and a C in chemistry. I am predicted an A/A* (is that even possible at AS) in Art.

    The deadline to resit was a few weeks ago, but i could always resit next year,

    What i want to know is, is it worth resitting Chem next year during A2 to try and get a B or an A, or should i just work my socks off in this next (slightly larger) unit and try and bump it up to a B?

    Do Universities frown upon resits? Which would they prefer, a 'first attempt' B/C grade, or a re-sat A grade????


    I am considering becoming a vet, and so would like some good A levels under my belt!

    Thanks for any help you can offer!
