    I am coming to the end of my AS year, and am not sure I have passed my exams or at least done well enough for uni (I study geography biology and pe). The main reason i don't think I passed is i ran out of time and am not very good at writing essays. I want to be a physio so need to get ABB/AAB. I have my biology mock on Monday (its linear so we haven't done the AS exams) and i need at least a B. I really struggle with biology but need it for my degree options. I have the option to start a triple BTEC sports course in September however this really limits my uni options as not all physio courses accept it or join another college and start again. I got 8 As and an A* in my GCSEs if that means anything.
    Thanks for reading and helping (even though I'm sure this doesn't really make sense)

    Why would you need to resit if it doesn't count towards A2?

    My geography and PE count to my A level as they're still modular courses, and whatever i get on my biology is what will be predicted to universities. (sorry i don't think i explained that well)

    Did your geography and PE have new specifications? If so, your AS levels still don't count towards A2, regardless of whether or not you sit AS exams. Are you in Wales or England?

    My PE and geography are the old spec, this September they switch to the new spec. I am in England.

    I'll say this, resitting was the greatest decision I made, yet I did it at the end of my A2 exams, honestly it's nothing to worry about. So many people resit and end up doing far better than they would've and are far happier as a result. Just wait and see what results you get, if you yourself are happy with them then don't bother. If theres something inside of you, thats annoying you with them. RESIT. Don't do it because it's not the 'normal thing' to do
