    Hi. So i got really bad AS results D-chemistry, E-economics, C-biology and I kinda don't know what to do now. At my current school they said i can't carry on with economics so I'll only have two a-levels. But I wouldn't be able to go to the unis of my choice. Originally I wanted to go to a Russel Group Uni but thats out of the question.

    So I looking on the Internet of one year A-level, so basically retaking some of my modules of AS and continuing A2. There are privates ones which are too expensive for me but I've found some state schools which do it. The only problem is it's kinda a risk, and I'm scared that I might fail again.


    Or I can just retake the year, but I want that to be my last option.

    So can anyone give me advice? (Sorry for the bad grammar)

    Your grades aren't that bad

    I got BDDU

    I think that you should resit economics but carry on with it. I got a D in chemistry too coz of one exam so I'm retaking that. I suggest you do the same for economics if one exam has brought down your grade


    But it's really about whether you would be willing to resit the whole year or just retake those exams on top of A2 exams

    i got offered 3 russel group unis for pharmacy and it took me 3 years to do A levels after getting DEED in my first attempt at AS. so i repeated it again and got my A*AB and distinction in the BTEC i did.

    I didn't go to any of them, cuz i didn't like open days tho.

    or you can just loads of resists and work hard next year

    Your results aren't bad btw

    I was predicted 3 A's for my AS results, I got BCC. Do you think it's possible to get predicted grades of AAA-AAB? I know it's the teachers opinions but is possible to achieve these grades? Also with the 2 C's they are quite high with the furthest mark from a B was 10 marks away in one module, what would I need in my A2 to get 3 A's?

    yeah because I got E and a D in the economics exams and my school will only let me retake one so I was thinking of paying some edexcel to allow me to retake the other.

    Yeah you should but only if it is a low D, if it was a few marks off a C then it'll be better to retake the other exam alone
