    I've just received my AS results and got a D and an E in both Biology and Chemistry respectively. Biology I was particularly shocked at as I thought I'd done at least enough to get a C, chemistry was a little less shocking as my teacher was rarely in and I had little support leading up to the exam. Despite being predicted all A's I don't know what to do, whether to resit both and then continue to A2 or to drop one. Or do I either maths or history despite getting a B in both?

    Firstly, what do you want to do at university now and given your results what are you thinking of dropping?

    I wanted to study biomedical sciences as I really enjoy science and until now thought it was one of my stronger subjects as in gcse I obtained an A in both Biology and Chemistry but now I am unsure. I was thinking of dropping maths as I don't have the time to put into it especially if I'm going to be doing a lot of resists.

    Getting your grades up from a D/E to an A/B will be a lot of work. Before you go and decide what to drop, you should ask your teachers how much of a jump going to A2 is and what you can do to really pull your grades up. If you however do not enjoy maths, then A2 will be hell as I saw many people go through.

    You're welcome, I know there's a tendency to panic sometimes so I just help reduce that
