    You'd need 255 (A) for english
    and 232 (B) for Biology

    but bear in mind most people find A2 harder and often get lower grades

    What do you want to do then, coz if you dont need chem you should think about doing a easier subject if you need the grades? If not then yeah just work at it!

    Arghh... you really are pushin yourself to the limit there tho doing fasttrack chem... if you didnt mind not takin a gap year you could just do AS chem again this year and then concentrate on just A2 chem next year, as that seems to be your weekness, either that or you need to ask for extra help (If you have the money get a private tutor they really help) But it all depends on what you think your capable of.

    I know lol. I know i can do it. I just have to work really hard. I got ABBC in General studies, Politics, Psychology and History respectively...with psychology 1 mark off an A politics 9 off and History 2 off a B .

    It doesn't help that I'm not doing anything else remotely sciencey, and Its not relevant to my degree but I really love it and don't want to take anything else. I just hope I don't regret it.

    Good Luck!
