I did the old Biology AQA spec back in 2010-2012 and I achieved as follows:

Unit 1: B
Unit 2: B
Unit 3X: D
Unit 4: A*
Unit 5: E (due to personal circumstances)
Unit 6X: U (also due to personal circumstances)

Should I retake both the practicals + Unit 5 if I want to get an A* overall or just the Unit 5+6?

AQA have a rule (at least in english) that if your first year ums plus your second ums equals an A (but not necessarily on their own individually) and you get 90% overall second year you get an A*
So with you b's and A* for the first year you have nothing to gain by redoing the first 3 units
All you need is the 90% for the second year units
Again i only know this is definitely how it works in aqa english language so check if it is for biology

I got the A* in my second year but I think I know what you mean; thank you for your reply anyway; it's very good

you'd defo need retakes in the as modules, defo unit 3x and either unit 1 or 2. Personally i found unit 2 a charm so prob go with that. Unit 5 and 6x both need retaking as the A* includes geting a high score in the unit 6x,

therefore retake unit 3x, 1 or 2, 6x and 5

Would I really need to retake unit 1 or 2? Unit 3X, 6X and 5 I understand.

You need any in As. If a high mark in 3x is enough then that's fine. Do your 3x and if you do really well then obv don't book unit 1/2 otherwise you would need to. You need the A in as to get an A* overall
