    Guys, i need some advice. I've just received my AS level results and they are not what i expected! Very disappointed. so, i've got 2 options, either carry onto A2 and resit the modules or resit the whole year. Grades i will be carrying onto A2 are
    Maths: C1-B-74/100 ums
    C2-C-63/100 ums
    D1-D-54/100 ums
    overall grade: C, was 19 ums from from a B. i think i could easily get a B by resitting D1 and C2.

    Chemistry: F321-D
    overall : D- 9 ums from a C

    was really disappointed with chemistry, i would have done way better. i can easily achieve a C by just doing the coursework again.

    biology: unit 1- D
    unit 2 -D
    (coursework) unit 3 - C
    overall D- 11 ums from a C

    please guys, what would you advice me to do?

    I got DDDD in maths, psychology, biology and chemistry. I was one ums away from a C in psychology and four in biology.
    My tutors have recommended that I go onto A2, and have said that gettings As is still possible if I work hard enough. They said if I don't do as well as I would have liked at the end of A2 then I can take a third year to resit some modules in.
    It all depends how hard you're prepared to work really. You don't actually need to resit any modules, and resitting them gives you a bigger work load. Look into the resit regulations at the Universities you want to go to, for your degree, for courses like Medicine for example only 3/4 Unis will consider you if your resits went outside of two years but most accept resits within two years.
    The decision depends entirely on your circumstances, hope I helped a little bit though.
