    Okay i'm currently doing psychology maths law and sociology as levels. I've had so many problems this year such as stress depression family problems etc and haven't been able to focus solely on college which is why i'm quite struggling and therefore not achieving what I should be getting. I'm just wondering is it possible to retake your whole AS level year and do universities frown upon this? I want to do psychology in uni if that makes a difference

    It is possible to retake your AS year. You should talk to one of the senior staff at your college, explain your situation if they're not already aware of it and see if they can offer you a place for this September. When you apply to university, as long as you get your tutor/teacher to express your circumstances in your reference, they shouldn't frown upon it - you have legitimate reasons for retaking your year. If anything, this should serve to your advantage - it shows you're pretty damn determined to get those grades you want! Good luck :yep:
