    Hi,
    I am 4 weeks into my A levels and I am extremely behind...I am 2 chapters in biology and chemistry behind, tons of homework behind and practical work behind too. The only way to recover is by catching up in the holidays but it won't be effective as its different from learning via lessons.
    Because A levels has changed and it is a straight 2 year course, I cannot retake the year as there is no such thing as AS anymore. So I was wondering would it be best If I take a one year gap in my studies and do Alevels the next year all fresh or should I continue...even if I have 2 years left, I have missed 4 weeks...that will affect my overall grade massively in 2 years time.

    Also, they have removed retakes, and therefore the original A-level course in now a complete 2 year course.

    Is this really true? O.o I thought you could do one retake... Thank goodness I got out of the system before these reforms were enacted.
