    Just received my AS results. Not very happy as I was predicted an A at A-level. With my current grades can I still get an A in Economics next year? Do I have to retake both modules?

    Economics(Edexcel): B, 144/200 UMS
    - Unit 1: B, 73/100
    - Unit 2: B, 71/100

    If someone can talk to me about this in detail please feel free to inbox me.

    Of course you can still get an A, you only got Bs which are still good, umm your best advice will be from your teacher as he knows where you're strengths lie, Unit 1 i think is easier and will be your best bet at getting a few extra marks. However seeing as all your exams will now be in june doing 3 exams as well as your others may not be the best idea so if i were you (unless you know you didnt do as well because of stress, or a bad paper etc) then just work really hard for units 3 and 4.

    Do you think one module is enough to pull up my marks? I'm 16 UMS away from A in AS...Or should I retake both modules to increase my chances? However in honesty I think I'm more comfortable with Unit 2 scripts at the moment, simply because I've done more.

    I think I can cope with the stress.. I did 5 A-levels this year so I kind of have an idea what it will be like. I'm kind of scared I won't be able to get high marks for units 3 and 4 though :/ Everyone seems to make it sound impossible, what is your experience on this?
