    Does UCL accept A2 module retakes for psychology degrees?
    I've been given a conditional offer of A*AA but my UMS marks for my most recent A2 modules are not as high as I had hoped so I am considering retaking a maths module so as to improve my chances of getting an A* in maths.

    I take 4 A levels, having secured 4 As at AS with UMS above 90 in all modules, it is statistically relatively easy for me to get As this year too though I'm worried about getting an A*. I have however got an A* in my Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) so do you think UCL is likely to accept me if I missed my offer but got 4 As and no A*s?

    If you retake in June UCL wont care - the only issue uni's really have with retakes is if you take 3 years to complete an A Level. So retaking modules within the 2 years is fine

    If you get AAAA its quite likely you would be accepted, however if they have huge numbers of people meeting their offer then they are within their rights to reject you in August. However, realistically with 4A's i would expect them to accept you. - if you email to ask you would probably get a generic reply saying it depends on numbers. If you take 2 science subjects as well i would think this would increase your likelihood of being accepted with 4A's as well

    best of luck

    Thank you so much! I really hope so, and I do take two sciences so fingers crossed.
