    I'm taking Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History and took all but history exams in January. The maths was awful and my whole year said that and got bad grades however the other two exams i found amazingly good and was really hopeful that I would get A's in biology and chemistry because I revised so much and did some many past papers and could only see where I lost a few marks. I got my results back yesterday expecting to have to retake maths but not the others, however I was shocked to see I got a B in biology (1 mark off an A) and a C in chemistry (9 marks off of an A). I do not know whether to retake or what to do so need help?! I'm getting my papers back and am probably going to get them remarked but i do not know what i have done wrong.. do i need to revise more or what? Please help, need advice on what to do because i am still in shock and do not understand how i got those grades considering the chemistry exam was my most confident. Thanks!
