    Hello,

    You really shouldn't worry if you don't do too well in your AS results the first time round. Honestly, it happens to nearly everybody. I was a culprit too, in my first year I got CEUU in my AS levels (yes really!) and I've just received my results this summer in A2 Psychology, AS Chemistry, AS Maths, and AS Accounting and I got BBBD this year respectively (the D was just through a bad exam). Although my results last year were due to family problems, the point I'm trying to get at is that never become de-motivated and keep working hard and learn from your mistakes too. If you are able to carry on to A2, I would (depending on your grades of course), and possibly resit some AS modules. However, if you feel you can improve a lot, there's nothing wrong with resitting your AS year, as I have just done this year . Remember, once you start A2, all the AS stuff becomes really simple. All the best!!

    I totally agree - I know sooo many people who upped from AS to A2! One guy I know went from ABB AS' to A*A*A* A2 through retakes. I personally went from a C in an AS RE module to an A.
