Should i resit tho whos AS year or resit all AS units whilst doing A2?.Which will be better off and most likely get me good grades?
I got DDDC at AS. Im quite smart just lazy and didnt revise enough. This is a real kick up the bum.

I did maths chem bio and RS.

Should i resit the year or resit all units with A2. Also consider no jan exams so it will be 12-18 exams only in june and applying for uni. It will be hell.

I want 3 B's. Carrying in with maths bio chem

Please help.. Which one should i so.. I have no one in my family to give me advice on this

I posted it here as i want experienced opinions

Particularly with Chem (OCR) and maths (at least for Edexcel), the A2 modules contain a lot of the AS material so I think you should carry on with the A2 with AS retakes

I would take AS exams in your a2 year then use your resit year 13 and redo your a2 exams.

It depends on a couple of things:
1. The course and/or uni you want to go to - does it accept A-levels taken over 3 years? This is the most important limiting factor, check this before making a decision.
2. If you resit AS units in your A2 units will you be able to cope with the workload? A2 is harder than AS and takes more time; but whether you think you can do this is entirely up to you.

As far as exams in summer goes, the AS exams are a few weeks before the A2 exams so it's not quite as bad as it sounds, and AS will seem easier once you have done A2.
