    So your in you finial year for your other subjects?

    You can repeat any modue during any exam season. So you could resit the first module of your AS along with your final A2 exam. Uni's only care about A2 module resits in your second year, even then its only ones like Oxford and Cambridge.

    NO they don't care, I done it and I'm now at uni. They don't even care if you retake it 5 times so go ahead.

    Edexcel. Also do they look at the highest score or the last one?

    To those who say universities don't care about module re-sits, and can't tell that you have taken them, I would just point out that Imperial College only accepts maths candidates that have achieved grade A in A level maths modules at the first sitting and does not allow re-sits. Presumably, this is policed outside the UCAS system. This clearly does not apply, currently, to most courses at most universities (or to the OP's specific case) but does demonstrate what top universities will do to ensure they only take the best.
