    Can I resit A2 exams in Summer 2017 if I fail them this year and don't get into university, and still keep my AS results?

    Yep you can, however due to the new specification changes you might not be able to sit all exams.

    To find out which exams you can be able to sit you'll have to contact each exam board individually.

    Resits in AS and A level qualifications
    For AS and A levels we proposed that:
    Students taking AS and A levels in the last scheduled sitting should have the
    opportunity to resit these qualifications after the final scheduled award,
    regardless of the subject and exam board.

    Resit opportunities in AS and A level subjects where new qualifications were
    introduced in September 2015 will be available in the legacy qualifications in
    May/June 2017.
    AS and A2 units for these qualifications will be available to all
    students in the normal way in May/June 2016.

    Resits will take place in May or June.

    Students will be able to resit any AS or A2 units (including controlled
    assessment units).

    Only those students who have taken the qualification previously, or who had
    good reason not to have taken it when planned (such as illness) can take a resit
