    Say a scenario, I finish with a 1st at a decent university like Manchester, and would want to apply for a graduate program at Cambridge, would my A-level resits affect my application, or do they solely look at an undergraduate degree.
    I didn't know that beforehand, and therefore planning on resitting some of them, someone told me this could be problematic, I really want to do a grad school at either Cambridge or Oxford.
    Thanks (p.s. would be a politics/economics based degree)

    No. Mine are ****. I did an access course to get on to my degree. I got a first at Newcastle and got into Cambridge. I was rejected at Oxford but I don't think my A-levels had anything to do with it.

    I don't know if you're international or not but the term Grad School is generally not used or well known in the UK.
    Can you get into schools like LSE/Kings/Manchester with access? Also I want to do international relations or PPE for undergrad, but can't seem to find any politics based access course in London. Any tips?
    Also thanks for the reply, and well done for getting into Cambridge!

    Hey!

    So I graduated with a 1st from Kent Uni and was accepted into Oxbridge. My A-Levels were average not great, but I know someone else on the course who got like BBC and is on the course too. It seems that there is a focus on the undergrad more so than anything else, at least in my department!

    Hope this helps
