    This is pretty impossible to answer which may be why you haven't had a response

    1) What are you current grades?
    2) What do you want to study at university
    3) What are the course requirements/ UCAS points required for the courses you're interested in for the universities you've listed?
    4) Why do you think you need to retake bio and EL coursework?

    They sound like pretty good grades to me

    Are the courses you are considering require A* AAAB?

    Have you considered a remark for the EL B?

    Ive sent my EL for a remark but I just wanted to have a back up if it didnt change! Most courses want an A in EL so I would have tk retake the coursework but would retaking ib my third year be a hinderance when applying to the list of unis I listed before
