    A few of my friends who got similar AS grades retook the year and say they are glad they did as they didn't want to have double the amount of exams and a billion resits! I would probably recommend retaking the year so you don't feel pressured to do loads of resits! Hope this helps!

    Considering all the exams next year are in June next year, and we will have too many already, resitting loads would be awful. Just retake the year.

    If your getting E's and U's in a subject maybe you should change these subjects and retake the year
