Hey I’ve completely failed year 12 and was doing geo econ and biology. Going to retake year 12 and study geography economics and gov and politics. Are these good a levels? Want to do accounting and finance or an econ degree when I’m older that needs a 7 in maths. My gcses are 8877777764. Can I achieve three As this time round and any tips? Also I heard only oxbridge look down at year 12 retakes is this true ?

I don't know all of them of the top of my head and it varies between courses, if you send them an email then they can tell you for sure

some unis are okay with retakes, some aren't. you'll need to check their respective websites or email admissions for clarification. i don't see why you couldn't get 3 A's first year if you work hard, revise smartly and know where you went wrong the first time you did year 12.
