Okay so I'm an A2 comp student (OCR)
It's 4 units (both years out of 200, so 400 altogether)

at AS I got 75/100 for unit 1 and 74/100 for unit 2
all year last year i actually did MUCH better in unit 2 than unit 1 (got As throughout the year in unit 2, Ds throughout the year in unit 1)

However unit 2 is harder and I'm scared that this year's unit 2 exam will be as hard as it was last year because if it is I'm screwed, but if the unit 1 exam is of approx the same difficulty as it was last year I know if I revise I can get much higher (I didn't revise much if at all last year)

I'm not feeling that confident on the coursework and reckon I'll probably get around 60/80 which means i need 111/120 in the exam to scrape an A overall (and full marks if i want an A*)!

With that in mind which unit should I retake? unit 1 or unit 2? Should I retake at all or focus on just perfecting my knowledge on this year's unit 3 exam?

If you are studying the same course I do think it would be wise to go for Unit 2 as inevitably you should gain more marks in it, doing Unit 1 will mean that you may gain more marks but there are less marks to gain so you will have to be really confident you will ace the exam. Unit 1 on heh other hand there is a larger margin to gain marks so it seems like a good idea to go for that exam, though it is harder, and you do enjoy that Unit better so hopefully you will perform better in it as well, good luck.
