    Hey, I'm in a verge of doing my A level exams and seriously believe that I won't do well due to my naivety and the underestimation of the difficulty of the courses I'm doing; bio, chem, phys and econ. Now I know I'm mostly to be blamed for this but should I do bad in my exams which I will, and If I choose to retake the whole year at college, what does this mean for me? Will I have to start a new specification and follow the new changes made to A level? Will all the exams be linear? Will there be any retake opportunities? How will universities choose applicants?

    If you were to go elsewhere and restart i think the changes(if they are official) will take place so you will be affected.

    Tbh, i am not really sure so you should search into this.


    I think that students will do their AS and A2 in year 13 rather than the end of each year.

    I have my A2 exams this summer. If I don't do well, is it possible for me to resit those A2 exams next year, without the changes affecting me?
