    Hello people, I got my AS results and the result was AB and two E's. Instead of re-doing the whole year which would be stupid because of the A and the B is it possible for me to only re do the 2 E's all over again but leave the subjects I got an A and B for the following year.

    So this year only do the two subjects I got an E in and next year do A2 with the subjects I got an A and B in and one of the subjects I redone which hopefully i would of got better than an E in. I want to do this because I want to gain some experience in the free time I will have.

    The question is is this possible?

    If you plan on going to university, the three years will make your application weaker than some other candidates. Instead, could you not just retake the bad exams for one of the Es and continue all three on to A2 next year (a fourth AS isn't really all that important)? If not, and you do redo the EE (which will be permitted by some colleges/sixth forms but not others) I would suggest also picking up at least one if not two more AS, or continuing your A onto A2. That way at the end of the three years you'll have more A2s, or more ASs, than the standard applicant.

    Wow I was so stressed that never occurred to me, thank you very much, I think what im going to do is as as you said redo the 2 E's and carry on with the A. Thus at the end I would have 4 Alevels thus I would have more A2's. I dont think I will pick up another AS because I dont want to overload myself to make sure my grades on point this time. Thanks alot for your suggestion!!

    No. You need 3 A-levels for university. Buckle up and get to work. Seriously.
