    I recived my as results and I got a CCE for AS Biology, Maths and Chemistry.

    I have no idea what to do now, I'm wondering if I can retake the entire year again if it's at all possible? I do not mind doing three years of college. Please any advice is REALLY helpful. Thanks.

    I think at a lot of schools it's possible to retake the year - in my year there's a guy who is redoing the year. As for what do to, I'd say you should tackle the problem that led to your having those results. So, if it was revision tactics, I'd say you should research on that, and also: always make sure that you (as I like to say) spiritually understand what is being taught. By that I mean that you genuinely understand what's going on and aren't just blindly following formulas, etc (especially with your subjects). Make sure you actually know what you're doing when you're working with questions. Also, it would be very smart to use your free periods wisely. I'd suggest ggoing over things you learnt there, so for example, doing past paper/practoce questions for maths on the topic you've just covered. Be very well organised.
    Also, if your school doesn't let you retake the year, you could apply somehwere where they do.

    Hope that helps!
