    I have recently received my AS grade for Philosophy and I was only 1 mark off a D. However, as this grade effects my final grade at the end of A2, my teacher believes that the best thing for me to do would be to resit AS aswell as doing A2 and my other two A2 subjects. I was just looking for some advice fom anybody who may have been in the same situation so I know whether to resit or to just focus on this years content in order to boost my grade from an E to a C.

    If you did much worse on 1 paper I'd definitely re-sit that. What were your scores on the 2 units?

    I'd resit it if I were you. A2 gets a lot harder. So in theory, by you should get a higher mark in your AS resit because you've understood a greater depth of Philosophy from studying it at A2 love. Which technically means, if you can achieve a higher mark on your AS resit then that puts a lot less pressure on you to smash your A2 Philosophy exams.

    That's what I did. I got a U in one paper. Resat the AS during A2s and got a B in that paper. So, go for it!
