    You might have a chance with the uni still, just work your butt off to get the grades. And if you dont, phone up on results day- pleading your case- lost of movement in hand during the exams etc.

    I hate that exam, it brings back so many memories of me failling. Funny, but sad.

    I needed AAA to get in Durham for Natural sciences and I got AAB with a B in Physics last year. They still let me in. Good luck!

    How lenient are Unis on this? Does a good personal statement help? CV?

    Hell Yeah, if you get a A at AS- which are generally easier to do, it makes getting an A more easier overall.

    Also, retaking an exam is not extra work, but simply further exam practice. At AS exam retakes you build on the skills you will need for your A2 exams.
