    Re-sit applicants why do universities say they're not considered, but then let them in?
    :confused:

    I knew one person who failed Y12, but then the next year got a Cardiff offer from Biology. Do universities really stick to their re-sit applicant policies?, it doesn't seem like it....

    That person may have had special circumstances you don't know about.

    If a uni goes to the trouble of publishing a policy they're very likely to stick to it.You've thought of one exception, woohoo :rolleyes:
