    1-do 2 A2s and 2 As's
    2-carry on to a2 maths
    3-do 2 a2s and a btec(equivalent to 2 alevels(

    I'm sorry to say, but with those sort of grades I'd probably expect you to achieve a D overall in Maths after re-sits. If you are happy with that then crack on

    wow. you won't be able to understand A2 maths if you failed your AS. Best to do AS again and do A2 next year. if you do A2 and As at same time. the amount of work you have to do, it will be too much. You need to learn basic again.

    It is more difficult at A2, but not very hard. Considering you got a D in core, I think you would find it difficult to keep up with A2 and resit AS modules, unless it was a fluke or something, but it's not impossible; there was a girl in my class who managed to do it with a D at AS. I'd suggest carrying on with maths, but work very hard or if resitting the year is an option, do that..

    I emailed some universities and they said they like to see a full workload at A level, so doing 2 A levels and 2 AS' might put you at a disadvantage depending on where you wanna go.

    Solve all the textbook questions and past papers then you'll get an A★

    very simple, but not easy
