If you managed to get UUE, then it's likely you would need to resit all papers in all subjects.

Several things I would try doing:

Look through the exam papers and see where you went wrong - no point in resitting for a repeat result

Learn from those mistakes and find strategies to alleviate those mistakes - was it an exam performance issue, didn't understood the material, wrong approach, etc.?

Get advice on how to study your A Levels well (see below for videos)

Do past papers under timed conditions, then review where you mistakes were; compare this with the mark scheme and see where are your weakest areas. Revise on the weak areas, learn from your mistakes, and then redo the question.

Study in a study group if necessary, learning from the students who did better than you ideally.

If your study material isn't enough, consider getting a tutor.
