    So yesterday I got my AS results online because I am in Spain and I didn't get three A-D passes to go on to A2. My results are as follows:

    Art B
    Business Studies E
    Product Design D
    Maths E

    I knew that Art was no problem for me, or Product Design. I worked out that I was only 4 marks off getting a C in both Unit1 and Unit3 of Product Design, you do the A2 exam in AS for some reason.

    For Maths I wasn't really bothered about the result, I tried and obviously it was too hard for me.

    I just don't know what to do now, I'm not re-sitting another year of Business Studies/ Maths, I wouldn't get a high enough grade. I want to go to uni next year, so will proabaly have to study 2 AS's this year, but I can only choose one of which that I might want to do, if that.

    There was another option also, but I'm not sure how BTECs work. There is this 2 year Art and Design course and I was wondering if I could have that alongside Art and Product Design so I am able to do it in one year because I will have half of my lessons with it not just one.

    I'm not really sure and it's frustrating me now that I am on holiday.

    I think repeating a year is better because A2 is going to be harder.
    Now you have your AS grade, I was just wondering if you repeat another year and you don't get the grades you want, do you stick with the first AS results,
