I have just received my AS levels, and unfortunately did not do as well as i had hoped. I am retaking the year and therefore I have to choose my subjects again.
The dilemma is that I really want to take maths again, however I got an E this year and it does not look promising.
The only reason that I am considering it, is because in all the past papers I was completing I was getting A's and B's. Also I really enjoy math , and it would strengthen my Uni application.
I will hopefully be applying to a uni with AAA or AAB so I need to know if I can get an A in my subjects?
Any help would be appreciated

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.
You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here.

I'm in the same position for English, I was studying Eng lang/lit as one subject and I got an E. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go somewhere else now to restart with new AS levels, one of them will be English language. The college that I will be going to in September doesn't allow people to retake subjects they have already taken, but I think I can get away with it!
I emailed the head of department at my old sixth form just to keep my options open. I was a bit hit and miss with English as I really struggled with literature, but there was no single English language option. So in my work I was getting As/Us lol. It looks sort of promising for me although I've already decided that I'm going somewhere else.
Is maths one of the subjects that has been changed to the new system that means the AS grades don't count towards the final A2 grade?
