    I did 5 AS last year. Did badly in 2 of them so I am resitting them (I didn't continue them to A2).

    The exam is tomorrow afternoon I have realised I haven't really revised for them, do they really matter as long as I do ok in my A2 subjects ?

    I will obviously still sit the exam but will it make a difference..i feel so stupid for signing myself up to do the resits

    The A2 subjects have absolute priority as your offer will rest on those. Only you know what the offers are.
    I'm assuming the ones you are doing for AS are the ones you did poorly on and not the ones you are carrying through to A2.

    But you are doing your A2's? Its the full A level that matters. In any event you cant magically do the revision. You cna make a decision not to sit them and do them again in 2017. That is the last chance of a resit.

    So upi are answering your own question really. Just do your best and deal with it after. I dont think it really matters as long as your A2s are good. GL anyway.

    It doesnt do you any good. As ive said if they dont matter, it's your A2's that do. Plus you already have 3 decent AS's? Just do your best.
