    It is totally possible! As long as you get your head down and work! Talk to your teachers and ask if they can help you with a game plan, think about resits, learning the A2 content and revising the AS work. Also ask your teachers for help and resources, it is what they are there for and teachers generally want their students to do well. Just remember the teachers can only help you as much as you help yourself! Think back over exam period and also during term time and think about what has affected you, were you being lazy (everyone is at some point!), distracted by friends and tv? Try and find a way to overcome this, allocate time for work, limit yourself with distractions like tv because it is soooo easy for it to spiral out of control! Also try and make studying fun! I know that sounds unbelievable but it can be, just imagine the satisfaction of fully understanding something! At this moment in time it is not too late for you!

    Hi there I think the Bs are very achievable with some hard work and graft, I do worry a little about the possibility of an A grade though if this is the level you want to achieve I would strongly recommend retaking a few of your exams. Things like the units in Biology these lower grades are sure to hinder your overall mark in the subject. I think anything is achievable but it will probably require a few retakes and a few higher results in the A2 year. Have you put as much time as you could into the AS exams? Is there more you can give? Best of luck
