    I'm a resit student and honestly it worked out fine. I've applied for Biomed though so it is a bit different, however IF you do retake the year - let me know. I can give lots of tips.
    Hi i could do with some tips. Due to lots of family issues i ended up flopping my AS this year and i was really hoping to get into biomed. Also, if you don't mind sharing, i was wondering which university you got to?
    Many thanks

    Hey guys,
    I took psychology at an AS level but got a terrible grade (D). I am now changing my college in which it is said that I am not allowed to take the subject again ( as in repeart the first year) however when enrolling in person I was not questioned whether I had taken the course before even though they know that I've attended a college previously and I've been signed on to it.
    Do any of you know what are the consequences if they do find out that I took psychology before?

    You shouldn't have many problems! I mean universities don't really care how you got the grades, as long as you do have the grades then they can't turn you down! Consider two applicants, candidate A didn't resit and achieved AAA however candidate B did resit but got A*A*A, they are more likely going to consider candidate B, and it also shows determination in wanting to leave sixth form with the best possible grades....I know way too many people who have retook the year and got into UCL, Oxford and QMUL/ KCL so do not worry!
