    I got a B in unit 1 of the IFS certificate of financial studies, which is my school's equivalent of compulsory general studies and critical thinking. My teacher wants everyone to resit no matter what grade they got. Will universities see the resit? If they do then I'll just stick with my B.

    Yes they do see them I think, but they don't (unless your applying to Oxbridge or Durham or something) generally mind too much. I resat a maths, history and geology modual over my A-levels, which was worth it for me as I knew I could do better than I'd originally done (and then fortuanatley did!). Depends if you think you could do better though, taking into account your other exams, the cost and anything else you may have going on that would get in the way. If you want an A instead of a B, then go for it. If you'd wanted a B in the first place though and don't think you could do better, I'd just stick with the B.
    Good Luck though!
