Too easy- how many re-takes do you want?

Disadvantages: Re-takes and ease of exams
What a joke. I am taking my A2 levels this year having taken my AS levels last year. In my opinion they are far far too easy and if done properly make the A2's a lot lot easier. For instance in my maths AS I scored 293 out of 300, before really stuggling in the A2 maths (I got a U and and E). However, because of the nature of the exams, I still got a B overall. Similarly in my French, by the the time I came to take my last module, I needed 3 marks to get an A overall. In addition, the re take aspect of a levels becomes silly after a while. I have some friends who retake modules 4 times, gradually building up their marks to an A. They should have one chance, and one chance only to achieve the A grade. In turn this makes universities have harder decisions, and possibly miss out the better candidates.
Summary: Make them harder!
