    I need some advice my AS results were really bad, but I wanted to study engineering at uni where he entry requirements are mainly AAA , should I carry onto A2 and resit or won't I get any offers because of my bad as results, or should I just re sit the whole year. Some people are saying that uni's disapprove of re sits now. I need advice

    To find out what the specific university thinks of resits, go on the entry requirements page of their website or give them a ring. When you know that, THEN make your decision

    If you did really badly, then resit the entire year if you can. It will be much harder to get a good grade if you're trying to bump up AS AND learn everything for A2 as well.
    I resat the entire year of one subject and turned a D into a B. I very much doubt I would have been able to do that if I was just ressitting the exams.

    I've not heard anything about Unis looking down on resits, but I would check just to be safe.
