    I'm looking to study Politics of the International Economy (L200), start date 2014 (applying post A2 after a gap year). My AS results (June 2012) were AAAB, with the B being in maths. I resat the Maths exams in January but unfortunately I received a B grade once again. Although there are no compulsory subjects for this course, I feel an A in as maths would be beneficial so I am resitting in June this year, making it my third sitting of this exam. I appreciate that this doesn't look particularly good, especially for a course that involves a fair bit of maths. I have an A* grade at GCSE maths and I have been predicted an A in my June exam.

    How far would resitting twice be a problem in gaining an offer to study this course?

    Thank you for your advice,
