    Hey Guys, I got my AS results last week, I got :

    B- Biology
    C- Chemistry
    A - Psychology
    E - Maths
    B - EPQ (not the same as a full AS level grade).

    Is it possible to get A's for my sciences next year even with such low grades this year? Or is that too unrealistic ? I'm not overly smart but I am usually ok with studying. I got 8 A* and 5 A's in GCSE. So I was very disappointed with my grades this year. Can I improve? Or is A levels that much harder?

    Cheers.

    If you have a high/mid B you can definately get an A next year.
    The C in chemistry however to get up to an A you'll need very very high ums next year but it's not impossible at all.
    I'd say possibly retake your chemistry as the AS content will be easier than the A2 content so you won't have so much pressure to perform amazingly at A2 chemistry.
