Scared that I have failed chemistry AS and I'm only doing three subjects!! 😁😅Watch
Is anyone else in this position? What are you thinking of doing?

Your ps,interview and experience are equally if not more important than your grades, however not many nursing applicants will have 2 sciences like you do so you ve got an advantage there.
Check out this list of entry requirements and you ; see that you ve plenty of choice still http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...y_requirements.
Which branch of nursing do you want to do?
Do you know the grades for the particular modules in Chemistry? For example, was there one module that you done well in and one module where you done poorly in?
If you only done badly in one or two of the modules, you can just re-take the exams for those modules, and that should boost your grade up a bit. If however, the vast majority of your modules are quite poor, then you may be better off retaking the whole of the Chemistry A Level. You could do that in two ways, by either doing the whole A-Level in one year, along with your other A2's, or you could retake the Chem AS along with your other A2's, and then take a year out whilst you finish off the Chemistry A2.
In any case, hope everything turns out well for you in the end!
Your Biology grade is looking good so far - tbh I don't know whether they will let you redo a practical or not, you'll have to speak to your teachers about it.
For Spanish, you could just re-sit the affected paper that you said you need to improve on. I re-sat a couple of papers in my A Levels (admittedly on different subjects) and managed to improve things
With regards to Chemistry... you say that you need to re-sit both of the exam papers? Correct me if I am wrong but when I did Chemistry (exam board was OCR) there were 2 exams per year and one module per year that was all of the practicals/coursework? You could re-sit both exams, but that would result in having to do 4 Chemistry exams next year, which might be a bit too much to manage (especially if you are looking at resitting one of the Spanish exams). Alternatively, you could retake the whole of AS Chemistry, and either do the whole A Level in 1 year, or do the AS Chem again (along with the A2s) this year and then take a gap year whilst you do the A2 Chemistry. You've got quote a few options - you're probably best speaking to your teachers and seeing what they would recommend out of the available options.
Hope that helps - let me know what happens
