    I think I seriously made a mess on one of my unit 1 exams and If I come out with like a C or below I'll have to retake it. But problem is, I want to apply to a top university. Will doing a few resits have an effect on application? And did it for you?

    I'm taking this ****** as a learning process, I definetely panicked, and looking back I could have done that question.

    I got ABCC at AS (the B was in my degree subject). I'm retaking one unit each from the B and one of the Cs. You can see my offers in my signature

    I think it depends on the exact policy of the university. Sorry I couldn't be more help

    For some Unis yeah ... but most no .... I don't know anyone who has been rejected because they've done a resit. I know people who have got into oxbridge and done resits.
