Hi, I totally messed up mt AS exam (BCCD). Think I missed a few marks in two subjects by 1 and 3 and thinking of resitting for two subjects next June along with A2 exam.
But I don't think I have any chance to get accepted in any uni with current grades. So I plan to apply next year once I have the final A2 grades and take a gap year wjile waiting for the result.
My question is, when you have the total and final grades next year, does AS grades still matter? For example, in Economics, I missed C by 1 point (currently D) and I want to retake or remark to make it to C (just to make it look good) but aiming to get B at the end of A2 exam.
So, next year, if I have final grade of B, but AS grade is still D, will it look bad when I apply to uni? Or will they only look at the final grade? Or shall I remark or resit to enhance AS grades?
Hope I made it clear for you to read... Thanks.
Worth resit for AS or do better at A2 exam? watch

I think the university will focus on your overall grade rather than just a bad AS one. As long as your meet their entry requirements with your overall results when you apply after gap year you should be accepted.
