    OK so basically I got my AS results back. I take Bio, Maths, RS and Chem and I ended up with BCCE.

    Option 1- I go ahead with year 13 and drop chem,resitting my Maths modules. I wait for my A2 results and then apply to university. I actually wanted to drop biology and having to deal with it for another year sounds like torture.

    Option 2- repeat year 12 with Chem, maths, RS and a 4th subject as I already have my B in biology (my school recommend psychology). This one seems like the better option but at the same time my school will be expecting AAAA. Why would I need a new subject when I already have a B and am working on an EPQ?

    I really don't know what to do!!!

    If you seriously need chemistry for university then go for option 2 (like med). BUT if you know that there is a way for you to drop biology and continue with the rest + EPQ, go for it, i guess there is going to have to be a bit of begging and tears!
    But whatever you do, know that you can do it!
    What i would do it is, Go for option 1, drop the chem and continue the biology because with B it sort of shows that am good at bio. But its completely up to you, taking option 2 means a fresh and higher chance of improvement in AS grades.

    So good luck in your decision Florence
