    So i got my As reults and was abit disappointed. I got Chemistry A Physics B Maths B Economics B. i'm continuing with chem, physics and maths. The problem is that i need to get AAA or AAB to do law which is going to be really hard as i'm going to have to do pretty good in my A2s. I'm retaking a couple of modules in each subject over the course of next year.

    I was wondering though how difficult is A2 in comparison to AS. I mean i really didn't do much work last year, which did cost me but i plan on really working this year. So is it possible to get Bs at A2 level.

    My current plan is to work really hard for christmas where i'll have 3 A2 exams and also i'll retake 3 AS modules, forces and motion, mechanics, Foundation chemistry. Hopefully if i do well in these i can get to around 320 UMS marks in each subject.

    Then in the summer i'm hoping to retake another 3 in each subject which hopefully if all goes well will mean that in my A2 modules in the summer i can get away with C's and B's.

    So i was wondering if you guys thought this was do-able. And is it reasonable for me to think that i can get B's in my A2 modules. Cause some of the people i know who've done A2 say that they got like C's and D's at A2 and only got to their unis due to their really good AS grades.

    A2s aren't that much more difficult. It's certainly possible for you to still get AAA. That all depends on you, though, and whether you'd be willing to put in the work. Resitting is definitely a good idea.

    Cheers, thanks alot.

    I really hope A2s aren't that much harder. Because i know if i actually work hard i can achieve my potential, which i don't think was reflected in my AS results. I'm just so annoyed at myslef though. Firstly cause i didn't work hard enough and also that i all my mocks i didn't get lower then 90% in maths, chem or physics. I just don't want to come to next year and find out i've screwed myself out of going to a good uni etc.
