    Hi for my AS level results i got

    E (Chemistry)
    D(Biology)
    E(Maths) //C1(B) //C2(U)// STATS(U)//

    Can i get some advice on what you guys think i should do? Is there any chance I can continue onto the next year? Or will i have to re-do the year.

    I was planning on asking if i could retake c2 and stats next year and ask if i could carry on with my chemistry course next year too, as i really dont want re-do the year again

    I also know 100% where i mucked up, and that was doing absoloutly no work for most of the year. I managed to pull my C1 up from a U to B 2 weeks before my exam, but it wasn't enough time for me to pull my other grades up too

    100% re-do the year, you dont wanna go to A2/full A-level, what ever they call it now, with your kind of mindset ( no offense ); you just learnt from your mistakes, best thing to do is start again, in a year that has a lot less pressure and demand.. You'll know what to expect and can slowly build up to what you should have been 2nd year of A-level.
    2nd year also has Uni always around, deadlines and other stuff, AS, first year is nice and simple, just re-do it...

    Some people will tell you to carry on, but be honest with yourself, are you willing to put a ton of extra effort, to get a better grade ?
    most just arent. think about whats best for you and your future, at the end of the day in 10 years time, 1 extra year at A-level wont mean much, if you get much better grades.. ( then again you dont really need great grades to do well but they help, but thats another story)

    Thanks for the replies!! I would re-do the year but i don't think i can take the fact that my friends will be moving to university when i am starting A2, and also not having any friends in the year below will be hard on me
