    Hello, I found out my AS January exam results and I got this:

    Biology: C
    Maths: C (Considering I worked ridiculously hard, made 1 mistake and went from an B to C)
    Chemisty: U
    English: C

    I was devestated as I was predicted minimum B grades for each of them. I would like to go into Uni to to medicine or dentistry but I'll have no chance if my chemistry, biology and maths grades are so low. I would like to resit all of them but I'll have a total of 10 exams in the May/June time.

    I am asking should I resit?!!? Is it really worth it I mean 10 EXAMS when 4 in januray was hard enough, help.

    Is it even worth retaking or should i focus on my overall UMS, because I need A's for the uni courses I want to do. HELP.

    I had 13 in my final exam session (no resits). Work hard, be organised and it should be fine.

    I am in a similar position I received 2 D's in Chemistry and Biology and I really want to get B's at least. I am thinking of retaking but if I do I will have 7 exams. I have been told by lots of people to retake because if I start working hard now I can do it. So, I think you should retake, to get C's shows that the knowledge is there you just have to work hard. If we start working hard now we can do it. Good Luck
