    I'm 20. I did my a levels at 16 and my best grades were the ones above. Wanna go to uni next year.
    I'm waiting for my result in a sociology paper. I am doing the A2 part of the sociology this coming year. However, I would like to go to a good uni. So for that to happen I'm going to spend next year doing a full A level in maths. Sounds crazy right?
    Anyway, is it possible in my situation to even get a conditional or would my application simply be rejected?

    Hi,

    I suggest you try talking to a career advisor/teacher at you school/college. I would recommend re-siting or remarking them, but only if you know you can do better. Or else, there isn't much point in retaking and ending up with the same grade.

    I personally wouldn't want to keep those grades. I would retake/remark at the next possible instance.

    If you want to get into a good uni, I suggest you redo your A-levels, before the new ones take effect in 2015.

    I wouldn't remark it, as it is just a waste of money. I would just redo your weakest units IF you know you can do better, at least my 1-2 grades. Otherwise, you may have to look for alternatives.
