    You can still get an A (and an A*) without retaking AS exams.

    As long as you average 80% UMS (480/600) in total over AS and A level exams then you will get an A.

    BUT you should think hard about retaking AS levels, especially if there was a particular exam that you did badly in. AS Level exams are easier than A Level exams so you may have more chance improving on the AS exams than getting a high mark in the A Level exams.

    I would definitely recommend retaking them as you already know most of the content anyway, and it means you don't have to do really really well in A2 to still get an A
