Default Retake a level 2015

I took A levels a few years back but was not satisfied with my results. Planning to retake next year, 2015 purely because I want to prove to myself that I can make it if I want to.

I did H2 Econs, Math and Art, H1 Physics.

Planning to take H2 Math, Biology, Physics and Chemistry.

No background in Biology. Took Chemistry for O levels.

Is a year enough to study for all these subjects?????

Are you planning to go to a Local Uni? If yes, you need to take a contrasting subject. No point taking H2 bio if you are doing H2 physics and chemistry.

What courses are you looking at? Some courses have prerequisite subjects attached. Please do look through before doing your subject registration for A-level as a private candidate.
