So i just got my AS results which were a lot lower than I expected. I got BDDE. I really want to go to a good uni but I'm not sure which of both these options to do (my aim is to get 3As).
1) Retake year 12: This would mean that I would do my tests again and get better results. At the same time i could learn year 13 content with a tutor.
2) Continue year 13: Work harder and improve my learning style and ensure that i could get As in AS hopefully by October (my personal aim). This would be more stressful. I would also have to apply to worse universities. Then on results day i would hopefully get into Adjustment. What are the chances I find a course in finance or a scientific course or find a Russel group uni. If not i would take a gap year. Also i'm dropping chem which i got an E on and i need to improve this mark at the same time.
if 2) dosen't work out is it possible to retake year 13 the same way if i wanted to retake year 12?
Basically 2) is much more harder
I really need to make the right decision so any help would be appreciated.

I was in the same boat. In my first year I got BBBB in AS when I needed to be getting A*AA at the end of A2.
I carried on, retook some exams from AS in the second year, and made sure I put in ALOT more effort and I got the desired grade.
I would say that if you are willing to work much harder then try the second option. The first option would be if you know that you are going to struggle with taking your AS resits at the same time as you do your A2 exams

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

Check your results to see if you done particularly bad in a certain exam but decent in another exam for the same subject (don't think i explained that well), then you could retake just one or two exams from a subject but not the subject as a whole
