Hey all !
I've got my A2 exams coming up and I guess I'm just concerned about my plans for the future.
At AS, I got B C D in Biology, Chemistry and English Lit respectively. They were not what I was hoping for, and this year I feel as if I'm not going to improve on these grades much. My personal predictions for this year range from A B C to B C D despite my official predictions being A B B.
I am re-taking some modules from last year, which so far has boosted my English grade to a C. I've also done an Extended Project (called Science Perspectives) for which my first draft achieved a C (likely a B after all the stuff I fixed and added).
I'd love to go to a good university and study my passions (Pharmacology, Biochemistry) but am worried that even if I do achieve good enough grades in Biology and Chemistry, that English Lit will hold me back from going to a good university, or the degree I end up with wont be worth the money. Of course I should wait until results day to put too much thought into this, I'm just looking for some feedback and ideas.
Currently I'm aware of a handful of options:
- Take my A-Level results as they come and find any Biology/Chemistry related course at any university I can.
- Do a 'fast-track' 1 year, AS & A2 course in a different subject to 'replace' English. (I'm not sure how the introduction of new specifications affects this)
- Spend a year revising A2 content again, and do re-sits next summer for any modules with grades lower than what I need.
Thank you in advance for any input and advice guys .

I would look into the universities resit policies and make your decision based on that.
