    Hi,
    I started my course in Jan 2015.
    When I had started the course I had taken the subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Maths). I finished my AS Levels exam on Oct 2015 by passing in all the subjects, but when I wrote my A2 exam on June 2016, I wasn't happy with the grades I had got in my exams since I failed in Chemistry and got only E's on my other subjects. I again rewrote my Physics and Maths A2 exams on June 2017 and managed to get good grades in that. But right now when I checked in my Uni, Chemistry is a required subject for the course I am going to do.
    I want to know is that, Is there any possibility that I can write my A2 papers only in Chemistry since I have passed AS or Do I have to write the whole AS and A2 again from the beginning?

    I am really worried right now

    Unfortunately the last chance to resit Chemistry A level on legacy spec was 2017.

    Confirm with your exam board or exam officer. You would have to do the new linear spec.
