I have received my results for the 4 AS courses that I took for the year 2015-2016 and it was dissapointing:

Sociology- D
Psychology- D
Economics- U
Law- U

I'm not sure if I can continue to A2 with my Economics, Psychology, and Economics (all linear, AQA new specification) whilst dropping Law. I am more keen to having more UCAS points than predicted grades too as I don't really need predicted grades for my chosen career path after A-levels. Hope someone knows the answer to my question. Thanks!

You need to ask your school/college as it's entirely their decision.
You should give some thought to why your results are so disappointing before you have that conversation.
You should also consider the benefits of starting again, maybe with a different subject selection or switch to BTEC if you are better at coursework than exams.

You have to consult your school for that, ask them if you can resit the subjects along with A2.

Those grades are not good enough. If you have good gcses, your college may give you a chance to retake.
