    I got my AS results back on thursday, and they're **** (CDDE). My school are still yet to decide whether they should let me progress to A2, and i don't really know what i should do myself.
    IF i am allowed back in, my school provided a possible alternative route by allowing me to do 2 AS Levels and 2 A2 subjects next year. I don't know whether this is a good idea, as I'd like to resit all my AS modules for one of the 2 A2 subjects. I don't know if I'd learn A2 effectively if I'm still having to concentrate on previous modules. It's made worse by the fact that there are no longer any January exams, so I'd end up having to revise for loads of exams in the summer.
    Another alternative would be to resit year 12 and start my AS Levels again from scratch. I know this would be much easier to handle and i'd be pretty confident of succeeding a second time round. The only problem is I'd have to leave school and go to college, which i don't want to do for obvious reasons.
    Any ideas for the situation I'm in? Advice from people who were in a similar position last year would be appreciated.
    Do you think it would be possible to improve so much from AS to A2, especially whilst having to resit previous modules?
    My eventual aim is to go to university, but if i fail a second time with these exams i'll probably have to look for alternatives.
    Thanks

    Probably best to retake, but you will need to work v hard next year. What subjects did you take?
