    So my As level Government and Politics didn't got too well. Was predicted an A and 3rd in the class, fell to a D and 15th in the class. I'm planning on re-sitting both As papers and also 2 of my maths papers (c1 and c2, was 4 marks off an A overall). I've been told that this may overwork me, especially with the politics, although i've also been told that i should find the maths easier.

    My question is, with all of the above taken into account, would it be too much to retake my entire As Government and Politics, and C1 and C2 of maths on top of my A level exams?

    it is not too much , just make sure you spend enough time on it , you dont want to regret not retaking because it counts towards your final grades and you will overwork yourself trying to pull up A2 , in my opinion you should retake because teachers generally love to drag you down anyways
