    So I got my AS results today and got ADU.

    I got a D in history because I got a U on one of the papers and a C on the other. However, I passed so I'm not too worried. Also its a new spec so I will have to do the whole exam next year again anyway.

    I am worried about the U in Chemistry. Is there any way I could resit or maybe take another subject and do it in 1 year so I can go to Uni next year.

    Just before the Easter holidays I dropped Psychology because I couldn't cope with 4 subjects. It was too much. Would it be possible to take that and do AS and A2 in one year. I attended all lessons and only missed 2/3 lessons. I have covered the whole course.

    Nice thing is that my teachers were extremely supportive. I was going through a lot of problems just before my exams and therefore was not able to do as well as I wanted.

    Appreciate any help xx

    I would say consult your teachers and find the subject you're most interested in / are confident (if that's Psychology, then so be it, you'd probably have a huge advantage), maybe something that will be of benefit to your university application or future plans and see if you can take whatever it is in one year.
