    I got my AS results, and am disapointed with some of them tbh.
    I worked reeeeaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllly hard but did not get what i expected:
    I got A in psychol/eng lit (which im really grateful for)
    BUT D in chem/bio

    I know unis are not are not looking for D grades :s but more like AAB/ABB

    SO any advice? specifically....
    1. I no unis go by AS & predicted grades, do you think my teacher will give me a higher predicted grade than a D for bio (im droppng chem)
    2. will resitting a bio module while carrying on a2 be wrth it fr uni applications?
    3. dnt wnna fail bio if hav to also resit


    Yeh i suggest you drop one science subject and in the other resit a paper and depending on what you got on each paper you may want to resist the bigger unit since it will have more marks available, alternatively if you did ok in that unit and messed the smaller unit, then resist that. Also you may want to think of re sitting the coursework if it is low as you can get some more marks without having to sit and exam.

    Also wondering what careers i can have with my a level combination, but one that doesnt focus so much on bio?

    Not too sure about all your a-levels but I can speak for psychology since I am going down that route. There are many things you can do with psychology e.g clinical, forensic, teaching, research
