    Hiya, this is something that you need to decide. A couple of my friends are resitting, so I am familiar with your situation. The new A-Levels mean that the D and E do not count towards your final mark but they do give you an indicative mark as to where you are, it's important to ask yourself and reflect on where you went wrong so you can do better next year.

    If you continue to year 13 your chances are, regrettably, a little slim to get onto a medical programme as I'm sure you're aware so maybe think to see if there is a different pathway for you - BioMedical Sciences is more research side of medicine if that interests you.

    If not, then the other option is to repeat year 12, but don't repeat everything, think on what you can improve - can you drop a subject to make life easier/have you made the right career decision for you? Talk to your family and friends as they know best.

    Luckily, as the new AS's do not count towards your grade....it shouldn't affect your chances if you were to resit, but talk to the people who know that for sure - teachers, advisors etc.

    Best of luck, keep your head held high and think about what you can do better, what's done is done, make the future brighter
