    I'm going to talk to my HoY this morning about taking my Sociology A Level in 1 year instead of 2. I'm pretty confident that I can get an A* in 1 year, or at least a A.

    The only university I really want to go to is Cambridge, and I know they don't like resits. In the event that I somehow did not get an A/A*, would resitting in year 13 make a difference to my Cambridge application?

    Is there a particular reason for your wanting to do it in one year? If you have absolutely mastered the syllabus and can get an A*, then fair enough, but it would generally be better to spend the full two years on it and guarantee a high grade IMO.

    I want to do it it one year because it's really that easy. It's no more difficult than an extra GCSE, therefore I know I can get a high grade. I don't want to waste two years on it when I could just do it in one and take an extra AS next year I can't see myself getting a low grade tbh, I'm just curious as to what would happen if I did.
