    Okay so basically last year I got a B overall for AS biology but only scraped a C in biology unit 1 (60 UMS). Right now im torn between whether I should retake it or not since a2 biology is harder, but then I have another retake on the same day.
    what do you think? Is it worth retaking? :s
    Thank you!

    I would say If you are aiming for a B+ overall in A level you should take it as doing A2 biology makes AS relatively easier. It's a risk, you should definitely prioritise A2 over AS but It's really up to you at the end of the day. Scoring higher on that Unit 1 decreases the pressure on your A2's. Hope this helped
