    well...after the tough jan exams... i managed to get my results for bio and chemistry. Im aiming for an overall grade A AS grdae.

    But i got a UMS of:
    70/90 B for Biology
    68/90 B for Chemistry

    what do you think i should do....retake or just leave it? and reasons?

    thnx very much!

    Nahhhhh, you have good marks, make up for it in your other 2 modules to save yourself extra exams in the summer. remember..a b is good

    I may start a 'B is good' society..people need to embrace it more

    leave it.

    just work your ass off from now to summer exams and aim for a high A. if you want it enough you can do.


    They're high Bs. So if you can ensure a high coursework mark and you're comfortable with your other exams, it may be worth leaving it.

    Are you in yr 12 or 13? If you're year 12 - you may as well re-sit if you're concerned. If you're year 13 i think you'd be adding more stress, so personally, leave it.
    im in year 12 now
