So I am going to be studying A-level physics, biology, chemistry and Mathematics. I got my A in maths for GCSE and now I got a B overall for Core science (10 marks off an A) i believe I can get an A but I would have to retake 2 GCSE's so it's like. If i want to retake my Chemistry 1 exam, I will have to do another exam exam like Physics 1... This is my question. Should I keep a B and aim to get an A* in additional science or should I risk retaking chemistry 1 and physics 1 again just to get A overall with core science which will put me into a lot of pressure because then I will still be doing physics 2, chemistry 2 and biology 2 with it. My teacher said that the B is good enough and that it will get me to any A-level course as long as I get an A on my additional science grade. He also said that Universities look to A-levels much more than GCSE's.... So should I retake 2 exams and try to get AA or keep B and get BA*?
I am thinking of retaking all to get AA the minimum because I just checked and my first exam starts on 14th May till 14th June First exam is Biology 2 and my last additional science exam is on 23rd May, My first core science exam will be held on 10th June which gives me just over 2 weeks to revise for Chemistry 1 and physics 1 so I think i can manage it.

Go for it! Just do lots of past papers as this is how you do well in exams! A level science is so different to GCSE thou, you gotta work hard consistently, i only realised this after i received my AS results lol
