hi there i am currently an A2 student applying for medicine and have my predicted grades for the required Unis. i am also resitting some of my AS modules so that it can help towards achieving my final A2 results, my questions are:

my school has not cashed in my grades

1. the unis i am applying to say they want the grades to be achieved at the first sitting, does this include my AS grades?

2. is it worth taking a gap year for medicine, if the answer is yes

answers: 1. you will need either to fine-check their prospectuses or email them - some allow AS module resits but none i know of allow A2 module resits, though you should have made sure this question is answered before you apply

2. this is entirely up to you, but you should change universities if taking AS module resits means you may miss out on an offer as a result. if you do choose to take a gap year, this must be stated in your personal statement and justified (ie what you're gonna be doing with your time)

hope this helps

They probably only mean no re-siting of the a-levels as a whole, so you can resit some as modules.

As long as you complete your A levels within two years, it's all good.
