I do biology, chemistry, physics and maths. did little revision until may and most of revision was done during my exams. I think i did okay in:
unit1 + unit 2 - biology
unit1 - physics
unit1 - chemistry

I definately messed up:

unit 2 - physics
unit 2 - chemistry
maths - c1 c2 s1

These overall results will probably be U,C,D,E

However i know if i resit i can deffinately get at least a A,A,A,B as when i revise i can realy excell in all my subjects also i did no past paper practice which i think also played a massive role in my f*** up.

So my question is can i resit all of my year 12 subjects and possibly do medicine at university.

Also which universities would take a resit student.

Bruh, I'm in the exact same situation. Same A levels. Retaking same modules. Except s1; I think I'll do okay there.
Ngl I even started my revision at the same time...
Anyway, what I suggest you do is, do As and A2 in the same year. I think I got a D,C,C,B so I'm allowed to do A2 by my school. Check with your school and try and do both in the same year. Medicine kinda wasted like that- you're normally not looked at if you've been doing A levels for more than 2 years. I think all unis will look at you if you do As retakes so long as everything is done in 2 years. Plymouth and a few others allow a2 retakes but even then, I wouldn't risk it because there's only 4 or 5 options you'll have.

Realistically, you've finished AS- it's just revision. You learn a2 next year. You've got 12 exams in like 5 weeks. Tbh its manageable. Just make sure you work hard next year.
