Sorry if this kind of thing has been posted before, but I'm just after some advice.
Basically, the title explains what I'm asking xD I got my AS modular exam results today, and they weren't all that great. B for biology, D for chemistry and E for maths. Actually, I'd say that these results are shocking, really! I'm definitely going to be retaking chemistry and maths in June this year, but I was just wondering what top universities think of resits?
I got 10A*s and 3 A's at GCSE. But by no means am I 'naturally clever' or whatever. Teachers all expected me to get A's for these modular AS exams but.. Well. Hrm. That sort of didn't happen. I didn't revise efficiently enough, and due to a relapse in my OCD during the previous few months, it impacted upon my revision and exams (although I have no evidence to support the fact that I suffer from OCD).
Sorry, I rambled a bit. Anyway, any information regarding the view universities have on retakes will be helpful.

Most universities expect you to resit any modules that you need to.
What is considered differently by many universities are people who take 3 years to complete their A levels (so resit an entire year).
This isn't universal - if you're interested in oxbridge or some of the more competetive courses at LSE/Imperial/Bristol/Warwick/UCL then they sometimes have specific policies over module resits. So if you have any aspirations to specific uni courses or universities then it's worth checking out their policies.
