    I got CDDD in my AS exams and I want to go to a pharmacy Uni. I think that I will be able to do a lot better in my A2 results but we are applying to Uni's with these results, so I was wondering if it would be better to take a retake my AS year or take a gap year at the end of A2 and apply with my A2 results. Thank you

    Three of my subjects are linear and one is modular

    If you think you're able to do better within the A2 year, go for it. But if you do so you must make sure you work very hard to achieve the grades you need or you'll be pushed back a bit should the results not go your way. Make a back up plan. Check all the pharmacy universities and see their entry requirements to make sure you can meet them in any case. If you think resitting your AS will benefit you then do so. Have a good think about it. We can't decide for you. But also think about what you will do during your gap year.
