    Hi,

    So I really want an A in biology and my AS results came back as a B. I got the paper remarked but went down 2 UMS bringing down the overall grade to a C. Is it possible to get an A in the overall A level? what grades would I have to get in my A2 units? Should I retake an AS unit?

    Yes, re-take any AS units that you achieved less than an A in. It won't be much extra work as you build on your AS knowledge at A2. That should hopefully bump your grade up
