I did my A-levels, went to Bristol for a year, left and I am doing extra A-levels this year at home. I also have an offer for Cambridge. Things don't always work out the way you expect them to and Unis do understand this. So if it came to it, yes, you could do an extra year of A-levels but if you have a choice just work really hard this year and next and then go from there
Hi AliceStrawbs, could you let me know more of what your situation was that made you took time off uni to do A Levels and apply to Cambridge? What subject were you in? Did you apply for the same course at Cambridge, and were the A Levels you took new ones you hadn't studied before or just a way to keep up studying while you applied? Thanks, it's just I'm in a similar situation, I've just done one year of university and want to change field, and ideally want to and think I could study at Oxbridge - if only I had known and done so on the first time round of A Levels, I wonder how much they look down on people redoing A Levels a second time to get in..
Thanks for your help, look forward to hearing from you
