    Does anybody know whether Oxbridge knows/cares whether you retake exams, and if so, do they ask to see how you did the first time?

    For Cambridge, when you apply, the University makes you fill out another online form, where you have to state if you are resitting any modules. I applied to Cambridge expecting to resit a module I recieved a D in and they didn't find this a problem.

    In those circumstances you are admitting that you believe yourself to be a weak candidate that won't get in unless you cheat and are probably wasting everyone's time.

    If you apply to Cambridge you will have to declare every single exam you have ever taken from, GCSEs onwards, including every failure and every re-sit, and also including UMS marks for all A level modules.
