I am self teaching A level chemistry, I passed with a C grade in 2015, but need a higher grade for some university courses.
I was wondering if I could take these in one year or if I’d have to do AS first, then A2 another year.

If you are a uk student then you can just take the full A level exams. No need to take AS. But you need to work out what to do about practicals.

If you are doing international A level then you can take AS and A2 exams in the same year if you want and could probably just resit any units you want to improve.

I am a U.K. student. I have found somewhere to do the practicals also. But what do you mean by full a level? I did a levels 4 years ago and I believe everything has now changed, are AS and A2 exams not taken separately anymore? What do you mean by full a level! Thanks for the response btw!!!

There is no such thing as A2 anymore. You will enter for the whole A level covering the full 2 years of content and do not need to take any AS exams.

Christ, so do students still do 2 years of sixth form, but take all the exams at the end of the two years?

Yes, that's exactly what they now do.

Lol but it all honesty if you work very hard and keep on top there's no doubt you'll do well!

I believe nothing comes easy but if you put your heart and soul into something, nothing is impossible!

Got for it! I wish you all the very best
