    I'm currently taking Maths, Biology, Law and Psychology at AS Level. My targets are As, but I'm honestly expecting U, E, C, B respectively. I've been completely unmotivated all year and have hardly done any work in class or revised, so I know that I could do a lot better.

    I want to study Law at University - they ask for BBC. If I can find a college willing to accept me so late in the year, should I retake AS Levels next year? (If I did, I'd change my subjects to Psychology, Law, German and Textiles)

    I'm getting really stressed about this because I feel like a disappointment to my parents. Also, I'm really beating myself up about it because I know that, by far, I haven't tried my best.

    I was in a similar position to you last year. And my AS results weren't great. However I stayed on to do Maths, Sociology and Psychology.
    I'm retaking 2 maths and 2 sociology papers. And althought they aren't the same as yours. The AS papers seem so much easier now and it will be much easier to get a high grade.
    I did Maths C1 and C2 last year and got a D and E. But this year, without doing much revision (apart from the A2 maths classes) I managed to get 2 A's in the mock exams.
    So, its completely up to you but if you are willing to work harder next year, it is quite easy to get really good grades in the AS re-sits.
    Hope that helped a little bit.

    You've got to enjoy your subjects as well, so if you don't like the ones your doing now (and as you said, would change if you decided to retake) then perhaps retaking would be the best option; these aren't just 2 awful years to muddle through something you hate before you go to university! My AS results weren't quite what I'd hoped but I retook everything in the second year along with A2s and got AAA - because I enjoyed my subjects. Just go with what makes you happy and you will end up where you should be

    Hm, I think I'm going to retake. Thank you!
