    Hey guys,
    So i got my results yesterday and they were pretty bad (to me and my middle eastern parents atleast) BBBC in order of bio,physics,maths,chem. w/ a C in chem my very strict grammar school want to kick me out of the course but i will battle them and should be able to carry it on. If not that well i dunno.

    For my predicted grades the lowest i can get are BBBC and the highest might be ABBC... i have some really good work exp under my belt aswell.

    I have considered everything from grad entries,gap years,going abroad to romania for med or even dentistry(cuz barts doesnt need chem as a carried on A level but atleast a B at AS level) or mechanical eng.

    Anyone got any success stories or advice on retakes and resits?ANYTHING WILL BE HELPFUL!
    Thanks in advance.

    Well I dont know your individual UMS but it may be worth retaking a few of your AS exams if maybe one in each subject dragged down your overall results.
