    What would your grades be?

    For my A-levels, I would have an A* in English Lit (CAAA module grades), a C in Politics (CUAA), and a B in Maths (BBAECB). Everything else would be the same.

    A*BC. But I doubt I could have done as well in my Philosophy exams this year if I hadn't have done well in my retakes.

    I'd have a B (ABD) in AS Maths instead of an A (AAA). And also a B in GCSE Maths rather than an A*.

    Same grades - A*A*A*Aa, but my A in Chem would've been a lot closer to the boundary!

    The only difference it would have made if I didn't do my resit is that I would have a B in AS Physics rather than an A, but I'd still have an A* overall at A-level.

    I retook an English module because I got a U the first time around.
    Didn't revise for the second and came out with an A...

    Not sure how that happened.

    I retook one module this summer after first taking it in January of year 13 due to some extenuating circumstances. I would've had an A instead of an A* if i left it, so it would have worked out well either way.

    History would go down to a B, Maths might have gone down to a D. The other two I didn't do any retakes.

    An A* in Eng Lit and you can't even write a sentence. I think you meant to ask If you had never RETAKEN an exam....

    Oh dear.

    Haven't finished A-levels yet, but I've only retaken the english literature coursework so far, and the grade would've been the same if I hadn't.
    Can't say the same for the 2 retakes I'm doing in January until after I've done them
