    So I got my AS results yesterday, and I didn't expect to get these grades. I got E in maths, U in economics and U in accounting. I have decided to take 2 BTECs and continue economics since it's the new specification for my board... what shall I do?

    Not at all, I revised properly and everything. I was shocked seeing my grades, I was really hard working, and all my mocks were As and Bs, I didn't expect the results, as after each exam I thought I did fine.

    I can relate so much to you, For my mocks I got all As and Bs, but for my results, I got all C-Ds.

    I decided to resit all of them because I believe I can do better, but the workload of resitting along with the A2 studies will be pretty tough.

    I don't know how it works for your exam boards but if you think you can do better and just messed up this test, why not try to resit?

    I am scared if I re-sit and get the same grades. And I can go to uni with BTECs and 1 A-level my teacher said, so thats y I was worried, I still am but that's y I had to make this thread.
