    Hi, quick question - due to getting a B in C4, I've missed the A* in Maths and thus missed my offer (and have been rejected by my firm). If I reapply through UCAS and retake this module, will it count as having taken A levels over 3 years? I know the top universities don't really like that, so I'd be tempted to just reapply without resitting C4.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    What Universities is it that you are wanting to apply for? I expect that it depends on the entry requirements! If you have a good personal statement and references and the grades that are required for the course, there would be no need to re-sit. Are you considering clearing?

    I'd rather reapply than go into clearing, especially since I'm considering namely Oxford and LSE. I think I've decided to change course (would probably apply for straight Law) so the A* in Maths isn't needed, and my results already exceed their offer requirements, but it's definitely bothering me since C4 turned out to be such a rogue module.

    there are some great places at top unis in clearing this year so take a look there. Look on their website too because they have the most up to date info. You dont have to do another year,thats just a waste.

    Thanks, your advice makes a lot of sense but I'm not really wasting a year if I do reapply. I didn't mention this in the OP because I didn't want to make it too complicated but: even though I got rejected by my firm, it doesn't matter since I was going to choose to go to another uni anyway (outside of the UK). I'm very happy with the course, but I've been changing my mind about what I want to study and my future a lot recently, so I thought it couldn't hurt to put in an application through UCAS to a couple of unis in the UK whilst attending the one here. Of course, I would apply for a different subject. Even if I did get in, I'm not sure I would leave the one here - it's just to keep my options open, in case I decide I hate it here.

    What I'm worried about is if it counts as taking A levels over 3 years if I resit C4? If it is, I don't think doing that'll be worth it, since my grades are fine anyway.
