I have decided I want to take a course in Mathematics and biology instead. In order to do this I would have to retake AS Mathematics as well as sit A2 Maths, A Level further Mathematics and A Level Biology.
I was studying (since January) to sit all 3 subjects as 3 full AS Levels this summer as an external candidate. However I have since cancelled these exams and will be sitting them next year so I have a full year to sit them. The reason for this is because I feel I have taken up too much of a workload too soon (I wanted to restart uni asap).
I have had to cancel resits before due to suffering depression, but now I feel it’s more of a case of taking on too many exams and trying to self teach.
However I feel I may have brought this on myself to some extent as I have been guilty of chronic procrastination and I am also concerned that I may have given myself too many second chances.
However If I start again next year and re do my A Levels over a 2 year period, i fell as though I have given myself too many chances and I may have given myself an unfair advantage over other people sitting the same course. Although I do plan on being honest with the universities I am applying too when discussing my A Levels.
Am i doing the right thing? Watch

I would do the A levels again, you will not be taking anyones place at uni or sixth form away from them, and it is a really good thing to do. I started my A levels again after screwing around the first year and haven't looked back. It is important and it will put you in a good position in life having A levels.
Doing A levels, depending how much Economics you did and know, its a positive externailty, and therefore undconsumed and should therefore be done more and more. And as you know if you have already been to uni, they are so good for helping you get there and preparing you.
I wouldn't worry if you give yourself 100 chances, getting into A levels and enjoy it. You wont regret it.
