Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that I didn't fail or anything, but I just feel that a B isn't 'good enough', and I'm somewhat considering resitting the two exams that I did in June. I'm in two minds about it, as most uni's require at least a B at GCSE, which I already have, but I just want an A at le...
