    I achieved two D's in biology and PE AS level, is it possible for me to get a high enough grade in A2 to boost those to a B WITHOUT resits?
    I mean are there enough marks there in A2 for me to do that?
    Help asap please!

    It's possible depending on your exam board's rules and conditions.But I'd say do the resits.

    A = 80%
    B = 70%
    C = 60%
    D = 50%


    It's not too hard to work out, take whatever percentage you got at AS, for example 53%. work out how much more you need for a B, which in this example is 17%. Now add 17% to what you need for a B (which is 70%).

    So from that example you would need 87% at A2 to get a B overall. You can just apply that to your results and then see what you need.

    You certainly need at least an A. As for whether you can get it I have no idea but I would suggest resitting at least some modules.

    Just resit the 'easiest' AS modules for those subjects

    I win from a C in chem to A, and a B to A in physics, and an B to A* in maths

    You'd need A*'s in your A2's which is unlikely given the evidence. If I were you, I'd just do the resits.
