I got 3A* 6A 1B in my olevel with As throughout the 3 years on my transcript. In A1 I've gotten 4A 1D in my midterms and 3A 2C in my finals. The Cs and D worry me since I want to apply to the IVs and Oxbridge for Engineering. I've given the SAT and am expecting around a 1400. Retaking the first year of A-level will considerably improve my transcript since I've been studying hard and am quite certain of my ability to get As and A*s. I'll also get a chance to retake the SAT 1 and give SAT 2, not to mention a boost in my extra curricular. I've been doing a lot of charity work teaching under privileged children so I could pass off the year as a gap year during which I did a lot of charity work, which I did. Is retaking the first year of A-level the right decision to help me get into the college of my dreams? Let me know what you think.
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
