    most of the time you will sit exams bassed on your first year of work (AS) at the end of that year then learn the second year of work and sit exams bassed on that at the end of your second year (A2). The grades from both years are then combined to give an overall score. You may have to re-sit some AS exams as most people dont do aswell as they did at GCSEs because they dont realise how much of a step up from school it is and a level exams are still unfamiliar. in this case you will be resiting your as exams at the same time you are taking your a2 exams for the first time , the end of the second year re takes would normally happen in the january of the following year .. or in the summer if it was originally a jan exam but since these have been scraped if you have to retake your whole grade can be dependant on exams taken in the same exam period.

    Or your college might just be odd and make you do your all your exams at the end of second year

    Not unless your college has this policy which is extremely unlikely. However, it will be the case for the majority of subjects for students in the year below you.
