    ... and still expect to get a minimum of A in each?

    basically i want to retake 7 exams, because i got B or lower.
    then on top of that, i have 4 a2 exams.
    -biology
    -chemistry
    -computing
    -g.s

    so overall its 11 exams.
    i would want at least an a/b but is it seroiusly difficult?
    my teacher said just do 1 retake in january along with your a2 for chemistry, and a similar trend for your other subjects.

    but i want AAA/a

    It will be very difficult to concentrate on and get a good grade in your A2 exams if you have that many retakes. If you think you just had 7 bad exams for AS and usually you could have got an A then think about retaking. If not, just accept that you are not an A grade student and only retake one or two modules at most.

    Well surely you can answer this question yourself, it would be no different to sitting 11 exams in june?

    I'll be resiting too in Jan, so in total I'll also have around 10 exams.
    I think that if you work hard you could do it.

    By the way, I'll be retaking chemistry (C), maths (B) and biology(D). I need to get at least 2 As!!

    Good luck!

    A friend of mine had 12 resits (i.e. all of his AS modules) I think it was a bit much for him as he did worse in the majority of them :p:
