    Yes. Sorry I didn't mention that in my post. My A-levels were Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Maths was the one I never re-sat as I had an A in it.

    I applied:
    Birmingham
    Sheffield
    Manchester
    Loughborough
    Nottingham

    I knew Loughborough, Sheffield and Notts would likely take me on ABB hence I applied there .
    Thanks for the reply! Did you get offers from all 5 of them or only 4?

    this isn't related to your alvel resits; but rather to your uni years. how did you keep on top of studies during the years? i'm just about to start 2nd year (obtained a 2.1 in first) and i'm wondering if i should be reading ahead or anything similar and also how to balance this year right to come out with a 2.1 or first. cheers.
