    So I recently got my AS results and they were not what I expected. My grades are as the following:
    B in Philosophy and Ethics ( 3 marks off an A so I'm getting it remarked),
    D in Psychology ( Unsure as of yet what my mark was until I get back to school in September - if I was close to a C then I will get it remarked),
    D in Product Design
    U in Biology 😔
    I would like to go to university to study a Joint Honours course in Psychology and Biology, but my school will probably not allow me to do Biology A2. So should I resit AS Biology and go back a whole year ? I'm unsure of what happens next so could someone explain to me please? Thank you👍🏼

    My recommendation would be to talk to someone at your school, as they will be best placed to answer your questions.

    - Tell them want you want to do in university.
    - Create a plan before you go back to school of what your going to do to improve( explain what went wrong with biology).
    - Go the extra mile with work in biology
    - Cry, you need to cry if they continue saying NO! AND BEG!

    Last year for my GCSE biology i got a C and i needed a B to do it for AS level.
    I did a 40 page report (while it was suppose to be a page) and told my teacher i need biology for my course, i started crying & went on my knees...... that did the trick!

    So after searching, I have discovered that there is a course in Psychology and Philosophy which I may pursue seeing as I have an interest in both subjects. If anyone does that degree, could you help by telling me how the course is and which career it is directing you towards?
    Thanks!
