    I really worked hard this year to get good AS results,
    I started the year with a D in biology and worked up to an A in the end of year mock exams. I was achieving good solid C's and B's throughout psychology mock exams and high B's and A's in economics.

    My results:
    Economics: B
    Psychology: E
    Biology: E

    Im struggling to understand how i could do so badly in biology and psychology, I have never received an E grade, so when i opened my results sheet it really did hit me.

    Now im wondering whether it is possible to do 4 resist, plus exams from my A2 subjects. If i put my head down and put a pause on my social life will it be possible to get AAB?

    Has anyone been in this position before and pulled it off?

    Since you no longer have January exams, resitting your AS exams as well as sitting your A2 modules in 1 sitting is quite a big ask. Have you thought about redoing the year?

    I know someone who did it - he was managing As in his subjects doing AS and A2s this year. He didn't do work at all the year before though, so a little different to you. S, can be done, but think carefully about it. Not sure how universities would take it though - they only have your current AS grades to look at.

    William Turtle, do you know how well he done and whether he got into university?

    I've thought about redoing a year however it seems that its not an option, as all universities that offer the course i would like to study want A levels to be completed in 2 years.

    If you repeat a year and the grades you get is lower, do they take the higher AS grades. ALso do unis look down at you if you repeat a year.
    Now we don't have Jan exams, is is going to be hard to retake all the bad ones.
