I'm thinking about resitting my three sciences since I did poorly, I got a C in biology and D's in chemistry and physics. I'm currently doing BTEC Science alongside media and history at sixth form but it's not what I wanted. I wanted to do a level sciences. According to AQA, the last chance for me to resit my spec is January 2018 (I sat them earlier this summer). I really feel these poor results eating away at me and I do have a desire to resit.
I'm just wondering, are they actually worth resitting? Sure I could try convince the school to let me on A Level if I were to come out of these resits with A's but even then I'm half a year behind so it's very unlikely. My btec science exam is also in January, in-between my GCSE resits. Is it worth resitting them? I want to do microbiology at uni and they're going to favour people with a levels over myself with a btec so I'm really split as go whether they're worth resitting in the first place or not.
Thanks for your help.

The January results don't come out until March so there is no chance you'd be allowed on A level Science courses for this year even if you got straight A*s. However, you might be able to take something up next year.
You've missed the main entry deadline for January so you'd have to pay late fees to enter but it is possible. I'd talk to your college asap for their advice.

If you want to do science at uni its definitely worth re doing them

I think it would be worth resitting, there is no chance of getting on the a-level courses this year, however you could always restart college next year doing those subjects.
