I got my A level result today which were straight C's in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. My friends are telling me to take all 3 subjects accelerated next year while I'm thinking of completing my A2 next year and then taking a gap year to retake my AS. Which of the two would you guys advise me?

You can attempt the AS in the next 2 windows i.e they must be completed within a year of the results if you are doing CIE.
I will assume it is CIE and these are the carry forward rules.

You need to check you can carry forward A2 and combine it with Fresh AS.


If so then it depends whether you can cope with fast track i.e A2 plus the AS resits or you want to spread it out. Ask teachers and be honest with yourself where you would get the best grades. If you feel you can easily improve then maybe fast track, but if you feel you are struggling anyway, then maybe spread it out.
