Yes it is(Original post by ryanaue)
Last year at AS-Level, I was studying humanities-based AS-Level choices, which were English Combined, Classical Civilisation, Religious Studies (Ethics and Philosophy modules) and Psychology, with my grades for these subjects being BBDE respectively.
Initially I was preparing to study Classics at university, however over the course of the year I decided that I had made a mistake and wanted to study Physics (maybe Physics and Philosophy combined) instead. This year, I am studying Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. This is 1 less AS-Level than most people take with Further Maths.
My question is: are my chances of getting into a top 10 Physics university damaged by resitting with these different subjects? I didn't do too well on my first time, and my gcse grades are A*A*AAAAABBC.I have asked some teachers about this, but I would really appreciate an honest outside perspective on my situation.
Also, sorry if this post has been a bit of an information overload; I tried to be as concise as possible!

I know it's not a top-10 but I got EEUU in my first year 12, followed by ABC in my second year 12, keeping one of my subjects but a different exam board. I had offers from Cardiff and Birmingham

Let's reiterate here for the benefit of those who are only reading the title and nothing else, that the OP is not resitting any exams but starting afresh and sitting entirely new subjects from scratch in two years.
