January retakes & when UCAS will time offers, help urgently needed, much appreciated! watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am set to apply to universities for a Maths & Stats degree, all of whom would likely require an A in maths. Whilst i achieved A's in my other 2 subjects last year, I got a B in Maths, so decided to take a gap year and retake a module. Having retaken that module, I think i screwed it up and wont get the required mark to boost it to an A.

    So my question really is, will the unis allow me until June to achieve the A I need, through retaking one more module if need be, or will they simply take the result of my January retake and decide from that whether I meet their targets once the result is issued in March, without giving me another chance to secure the grade?

    As I originally hoped I would only need to retake this one module in January, that is what i have entered into my UCAS application, i.e. Maths grade Pending January 2010.

    Any help, knowledge or advice would be greatly appreciated on this.
    Thank you

    shouldn't you have already applied if you want to go this year? in which case you'll probably get offers or rejections before module results come through. I doubt that they'll reject you if you still have a good chance of geting a better grade but 2 re-sits won't look very good.
