    Basically i have A2 exams plus 2 retakes of politics.

    I already paid for the retakes of Unit 1 and Unit 2 Politics but i don't I have done enough revision for Unit 2 so i was thinking of not doing the Jan exam and instead doing it in June. Unit 1 i am fine but Unit 2 is the harder unit and tbh i don't know that much. I feel if i do the exam i will get a poor grade.

    Having said that i may not get my money back if i don't turn up to the exam? Do you think i should just sit it and hope for the best, or just concentrate on my other exams do the politics resit in June?

    How do you feel about your other subjects? I'd say write politics- you have nothing to lose (If you feel you are prepared for the other exams)

    Last year just before my A1 maths exam I was also scared of writing because I didn't feel ready. My tutor basically forced me to write and I got an a.. so you never know; you might surprise yourself

    You've already paid for it, so why don't you go revise now? I really doubt you would get your money back if you didn't turn up.

    English and Sociology.

    I am okay with them.

    Politics Unit 1 i am revision for. Unit 2 is harder and requires a lot to learn. The exam is on the 24th.

    I think you should. They will only take your highest grade, so it's not like your grade will go down. If you don't resit it you're only losing money.

    Speak to your exams coordinator I would pull out of the ones this week. Monday might be ok. By the sound of it your really rough so you won't perform your best. Concentrate on getting better and face the exams in June.

    Not this week if you feel really bad it won't do you any good next weeks maybe. It comes down really to whether you feel you could really concentrate for 2hrs on an exam paper. I've sat exams with mild colds before and that and been fine but if your eyes and nose are like a tap I wouldn't do them.
