    Re-sit at least a unit in Chemistry. A2 is harder and you would have to do extremely well to get a B overall if you have a D at AS.

    No. I've known plenty of people get places to read medicine, or get into Oxford, having re-sat more than 1 unit. It is fine.

    Please don't be depressed. You'll be fine. I know people who have done much worse than you at AS level and have retook several modules and gone to uni to study pharmacy.

    Re-sit the chemistry, it's a walk in the park after you have learnt all the A2 stuff, I resit both of my AS exams and got nearly full UMS in both, so i would do that. Marks are more difficult to come by in A2, there is no way that grade is going from a D to a B with no resits.

    Resit it

    My friends resat modules in a levels, one of them even repeated the entire AS year since he got really bad...
    But now both are in their final years in pharmacy in Greenwich uni

    Your better off ensuring you get the grades needed to apply rather than not even benign eligible to application

    wow,that's really good to hear since my grades aren't all that either.
    Thank you so much for the advice,I'll inform my teachers I want to resit as soon as my sixth form starts .
    I've actually started self teaching chemistry during these summer holidays just to ensure I get the grades.
