    Sorry to hear you didn't get the grades you were hoping but you still did well, so please don't be too upset about them, most people make the biggest improvements during the A2 year.

    I'm slightly confused about what you're asking here, is it retaking a few exams during next year, a whole A level or the whole year?

    If it's the first of the options I suggested, then it is definitely achievable, but it will take a lot of work because you'll also have to learn all the new stuff for A2 year, however if you devote enough time to it then you should start seeing a major improvement.

    Hope this helps a little and if not then just ask me anything you want to

    If you are going to retake, bear in mind that you will also need to study for you A2s and will need to plan your work carefully ans stick to the plan. With Jan retakes gone, all exams get taken in June so you will have less time to revise per exam close to the exams.
