Retaking everything I get a C in? watch

    Hi everyone!

    So I've had somewhat of an epiphany, and I was wondering if anyone could help?

    So basically, I've decided that I am going to retake absolutely any subject I get a C in for GCSE and some I'll retake if I get a B.

    Bit of background:
    I'm doing 16 GCSEs; some of them are more 'certificated qualifications' than GCSEs, but I'm doing 16 qualifications.
    I've been predicted 6 A*, 10 A and 1 B [B in drama, but I have a feeling I might have got an A if the examiner's friendly].

    However, I'm trying to bring all of these up as much as I can, and I have said to myself that I am not under any circumstances having a B or a C. However, this seems like a potentially likely event in some subjects such as chemistry, where I messed up the first paper, and drew 4 outer electrons on the first question...

    Anyway, do you think it's a good idea to retake anything that I potentially get a C in, and is it possible to retake absolutely any subject, or at least just one or two components?

    Thanks!

    [If it helps, I'm taking English Language, French, Classics and Drama and Theatre Studies next year.]

    You're a "teen polyglot", if you have a passion for languages then you only need to show that you're fluent in as many languages as possible the only GCSEs worth retaking are Maths and the three Sciences imo
