I took my RS exam this morning and I dont think I did well in the second unit. Is it possible just to resit that one unit rather than the whole course if I was to fail?

No I don't think its possible, you'd have to resit the whole course probably!:cry:
but which unit carries the most marks? Maybe if you did well in the first unit and less well in the second you could still manage to pass?

You can resit a single paper, judging from people in my sixth form a good half of all A2 students will be resitting at least one unit.

You can re-sit A level units but not GCSE units, hence the confusion. If you do re-sit then your better attempt at the unit will count towards the final grade.

I don't understand what you're asking.

image you got a c in year 12 for one unit in maths and overall you got a high c for a subject. the teacher predicts you a c at year 13. then you retake that unit and now you have a b so does that mean that you are not allowede to choose a course that require you to get a b in that particular subject.

No. You can apply to whatever courses you want at university. Your school may advise you against applying for a course with A level grade requirements that are significantly above your AS grades and may predict you lower grades than you need for the course, but they can't stop you applying.

I'm currently doing my A2s but I'm resitting a few modules from AS. So yes, you can.

thanks
However, you are unlikely to get offers if your predicted grades aren't close to the grades they want.
