    OK, my first year went really bad,

    U in Chem (resat it)
    E in Physics (dropped it)
    E in IT (continued)
    B in GCSE higher tier maths (dropped)

    Second year (this year just gone)

    Chem (Turned U into a B, 4 marks of an A, not that happy)
    Biology (picked bio to do, got A, passed A by almost 30 marks, got full marks on one paper)
    I.T. :dontknow: :nn: (Tried my best but still got a D in the end)

    Staying for 3rd year, gonna continue chem, bio and need to pick up a third subject.

    Does my case look really bad to universities?

    If you continue with your sort of progress, i wouldnt worry about the unis tht much, with A's and B's after resits you should be fine (i would think)

    Oh, and i wouldnt worry about IT, its a funny old subject to do! (My brother did it and got an E, and he's a really intelligent chap!)

    Do you know what your third subject will be? As long as you arent doing Chemistry again this year it wont be that bad, you could also do a full A Level?

    Maths would be good for either.

    yes you can still resit even if you've dropped the subject the only difference is that you'll have to study on your own (i am goin to do the same for economics)

    Yes, you should also research the universities that you're interested in and their entrance requirements for both Biology and Chemistry and see what they say about doing A Levels in 3 years and what their preferred subjects are.
