    I mean, you are not far off for Chem and maths is 'easy' to improve your grade in provided you put a lot of hard work in... and I guess for Bio, you'd do better if you did past papers!

    Isn't biology linear? So it doesn't matter what you get in AS as it has no effect on your final grade. Hence you don't need to retake it

    Unfortunately, Im taking the International Advance Level qualification (Pearson), which is modular. So my AS grades accounts for the final grade too.
