Hello,
So I did my AS exams this year, and I recieved AABD
Psychology: A Chemistry: D
Geography: A Biology: B

I really really want to study neuroscience at uni, and eventually become a neurosurgeon or a neurologist, which is more realistic of me. However for that I NEED to have chemistry and obviously I failed that. I love the subject but honestly I don't know what happend to me, probably a bad exam day but I was so gutted.

Is it possible for me to resit chemistry during my A2 or just like one unit and do A2 chemistry as well. So I would basically drop geography and do Psch, bio, Chem As, Chem A2???
I really want this option because I am very confident that I will do this because I know where I went wrong.

My other option is if I can't resit chemistry or a unit of it than to take a gap year after A2 and study A-level chemistry, it's not the best option but I have to do it
I will try my best and do anything to study neuroscience because I honestly that's it's for me.
Please if you could give good advice on how to handle this I would be very grateful!

Also I wanted to know if I have to contact my principal prior to starting A2 in September to let him know I want to resit? Or I just can inform him at the start?

You can resit as many as you want in June 2016 but it is advised to resit your worst ones, so these resits do not affect your A2 studies.

You can probably inform him at the start. But all schools are different! Definitely inform your teacher at the start

I'm also thinking of retaking my chemistry but it's AQA so do you know if I can just resit Unit 1 and 2 exams or would I have to resit all three of them?

Sorry I don't do chemistry, but I know you can resit whatever units you want to resit during A2

But if you want to resit the whole of year 12 again, then you can't take real exams until June 2017
