Let's take stress out of the equation - let's pretend I would be able to handle taking the exam whilst doing my AS Levels.
This goes for any subject, any of my four options or my core/compulsory subjects.

If I get an A or B at GCSE, is it possible to retake it at college if I want an A*? watch

Hi there, Interesting question, however I would suggest if you're able to get an A/B grade, stick with that grade, retaking may be a bit harder while talking your AS levels, especially since the change in specification- however if you think you are capable then go for it. Dont let anything or anyone stop you from achieving your dream. And good luck!

In all honesty, GCSEs don't matter so much after you have them, if you know you are capable in that subject of an A* then it is most likely not worth resisting it due to costs and extra stress (I know you said to take that out of equation).
So long as you can carry on working at that level it doesn't really matter. For example, I was predicted A* at GCSE level History, but went on to get a B. However, last year in AS I still got an A.
Once GCSEs are completed and you have the grade you need to carry on to the next level, no one really looks at them anymore, and it's a much better use of your time to juts focus on A levels!
