Is it possible to jump 2 grades at A2

I had disapointing AS grades (DDD) in Bio, Chem and Health and Social care
(Did not do Unit2 bio and chem exams cause i was ill.)

and i want to get BBB at least at A2, do you think this is unrealistic? I will do retakes
Helpp?? :frown:

It would be with the hell of a lot of work.

What health and social spec did you do?
I did Biology A Level and got a (high) D at AS. Retook all units (incl. practical) and worked a million times harder at A2.

Ended with a (low) B. Teachers were shocked. So happy I didn't give up

Yes you can. Today we a principal talk and he was showing what people got in the AS compared to A2. i'd say 20%~ each time had gone up 2 grades from the lower grades and at the higher end it was about 10%~.

Work hard and you'll get the results!
I did; I got a C in Alevel English and after resitting the exam ended up with an A overall
However I got a D in Biology and only went up to a C despite all my hard work :frown:
