Thank you

    If you redo year 12, you will be a year behind relative to your peers. Also for some courses at top unis they won't consider you as they require A-levels to be taken in two years. Other than that, you will be fine, if you get good grades in your second AS year.

    If the sixth form you are moving to is worse, you will receive less support and so might get worse grades.
    In any case obviously you will have to get settled again.

    Retaking will only affect you if your applying for medicine/dentistry etc, where they are strict on retakes. I myself am retaking my final year of alevels and am holding offers from ucl kings nottingham birmingham and sheffield for chemical engineering. So i don't think it would affect if your retaking In that sense. If you feel you need to move then move but make sure they provide the support for Ucas application for university and studies. My college(london) allowed me to retake and gave me all the help i needed.
