Apparently AQA marked psychology and English lit in a suspicious way so you should ask for a remark everyone's having issues with those two subjects

Retaking the year might mean retaking all your A-levels in the same year as I'm not sure there will be any papers written for the current specification in 2017 so you should think carefully about that option...

Also, I agree with the poster who said you should get remarks. But keep in mind that remarks very rarely go up significantly and the best improvement you might realistically expect it to go from a U to a D/E.

I will definetley ask for a remark, but I think that my only other option is to retake the year unless there is anything else to do

You could nkt apply for uni this year. Redo your AS modules and do A2. This will be sooooo hard , its possible. Then take a gap year and apply with your better Alevel results

Hi I was predicted B's
Then you should defo talk to your teachers and get the script back. The examiners do get it wrong sometimes I had a mate who's exam was marked as E he got it back and had it looked at then remarked and it went up to C
