    Who else is like me and gets to every exam they take and think, damn, i could've done that better.. and ends up taking it again..

    and then by the time the retake is upon me i realise i am in the same situation again, and it seems like i'm simply retaking the exam for the fun of it!

    maybe it's because i'm lazy, or maybe a lot of you share the same problem? :p:

    not me. even if i do **** i wouldn't retake, i'm a bit weird but heyho! not weird exactly, but certainly different from people that like to retake about 10 times, but even worse those that retake even though getting As. I can see the plus side of this but tbh i just CBA!

    lol me too. I got a low A in a biology exam but i still resat but did far less revision. entered the resit thing on a whim because my class did so badly they paid for us all to resit including me. Makes no sense whatsoever. Pretty sure my mark will have gone down.

    I have retaken an A to get an A* before, but I wouldn't retake an exam which I had already achieved the grade i desired

    But yeah, i'm intending to retake all AS modules just to boost the grade up. Although with those performances i doubt i improved...

    I'm guessing you're being sarcastic (?) :dontknow:


    I was gonna write this, then couldn't be bothered to edit...
    I don't like retaking exams cos my school won't pay for any of them. £20 could be better spent on other stuff :bigsmile:

    See, I'd do that too, but my college charges £35 per resit... So I can't really afford to resit unless it's really needed :no:
