    There's no point in giving up. If you can get good grades in the remaining exams you could always resit the ones that didn't go well. Also you might find that they weren't as bad as you thought

    You should carry on studying and trying. If you're going to give up at the first hurdle what's the point of doing it all? And even if you think you did badly, I'm sure there are other units that you can do well in, and can improve your grade.

    I was in the exact same position as you last year, where I gave up after my first exams, and I honestly regret it because if I didn't give up and actually tried doing better, I wouldn't have so many retakes this year...

    But you just have to try and not give up

    I'd assume you haven't even done half of your exams yet. So no, don't give up. Work really hard on the remaining ones so that they can boost your grade up. Then next year you could retake these 3 to end up with a really high mark overall in AS. Trust me, as an A2 student who didn't do well in their AS exams it means you have to work extra hard in the second year so it is very much worthwhile grinding revision now. It is only going to be another month or so then you can relax, start A2 and enjoy summer! It will be worth it. You CAN do it!
