    I achieved 4 As at AS and have carried them all on to A2. However in one of my exams i did particularly badly on one paper - a very low B which thankfully was brought up to an overall A as I achieved a high A on the otherone.

    I am resitting the paper in which I got the low B as it was blip and I want to increase my overall UMS marks - so as to ensure I will get an overall A at A2

    My issue is that i've heard from some people that some universities don't accept re-sits? Is this going to be a problem?



    Retaking 2 biolgoy and a chemistry module to boost my mark up to make getting offers easier. Got offers from all 5 (top ten) Unis. As long as you indicate that you want to improve it and can do better than (if you got one) a D in a unit or whatever, they don't care.

    Unis only hate resits if you are having to do them in your gap year - i.e. A2 resits

    Some unis dont like resits, some dont mind
