I restarted my A Levels this January and I originallyplanned to sit my exams this summer.
But I believe I have deluded myself into taking on too muchwork to soon. I took AS Level Mathematics (I sat this at college 2 years ago),AS Level Further Mathematics (self taught), and AS Level Biology (self taught).
I have since decided to cancel my exams this summer and sitthem next year therefore I would have a full year to sit my AS Levels.
The reasons I think I am giving myself an unfair advantageare
· When I sit my A Levels again I will already be familiarwith some of the content
However I will be starting againfrom starch and 2 of my A Levels will be self taught
· If I was at college I would be unable to cancel my exams and start again
However if I was at college Iwould have started studying for these exams in September (therefore I wouldhave a realistic workload for me) and I would have support from my tutors. I also wouldn’t have rushed into a baddecision and overestimated by abilities.

You may be giving yourself an advantage with more time to study and learn the material but this will be countered by you taking so long to do your A-levels.

This isnt an unfair advantage. If you'd seen the exam paper that would be an 'unfair' advantage.

You're not giving yourself an "unfair" advantage at all. And don't waste the precious space you'll have in your personal statement by even alluding to it - you need to convince them to take you on.
