    I got a D for my economics AS and I found it really hard! But I really need a B to get into the university I want to, do you think its worth retaking both of the papers alongside my other 2 papers for A2 (there's no more January exams so it would have to be at the end of the year with my other exams) it will be really hard but if I study hard enough do you think I'll be able to do it? Any tips or motivational advice would really help thanks.

    I got the exact same marks on both papers they were both D's, my teacher wants me to get both scripts but id rather just retake because I know where I went wrong anyway.

    My grades for my other subjects are really good so I don't need to resit any of them, its just economics which brings my whole profile down, I cant drop it because I was only doing 3 AS subjects.

    Sorry I know this doesn't help your question but i would just like to know, is economics heavily memory based? Because I'm considering dropping it for another subject

    For me, i find it VERY memory based but that's because I struggle with it a lot and I really do regret taking it But it really does depend, what subjects would you be taking it with?
