    June, so that if you screw up again then you have more chances to get it right and retake again. It also take the pressure off you in year 13 (you are in year 12 right?) when the workload gets a lot harder, believe me.

    Predictions aren't always accurate. The workload does, believe me get way harder and seeing as these are only the Jan exams, the modules tend to go in more depth with the summer exams but if you feel you can juggle revising for the other units too, then go for it. At the end of the day, your higher mark will still count if you dont do better second time round

    Yes I am in year 12, how do most Universities view resits though? Would seeing that I had resat some January modules be a major disadvantage. I'm really unsure what to do!!

    Also if you retake, do universities see your previous grade, or do they just know you have retaken?

    my teacher told me that only a few (ie oxbridge) request ALL your module results, pre-resits included, but most unis dont mind about resits except cambridge

    Resit it June definitely the exams next january are harder than AS so its best to resit in June. You'll realise how easy module 1 is when you do module 4 for your subjects. You'll remember it more and will be more experienced in your subject.

    Thanks for your help, I will talk to my teachers on Monday, and hopefully they will let me. To be honest I think the results have made me work harder if anything.

    Thanks again
