    I completed my A-levels in 2012.
    Won't go into detail but I did 2 years of Aerospace Engineering and due to unfortunate circumstances I am switching Universities and looking to apply in 2015.

    I am looking to use this gap year to improve my A-level Maths.
    I did Mathematics (MEI), OCR which I recieved a mark of 418 (C). You needed 420 for a B.

    Now I did my A-levels in 2012, is it worth getting my exams remarked in hopes of getting a B or should I use this gap year to maybe aim for an A.

    Also how would I go about doing this? Would I have to sit all 6 modules in one year? Or can I sit 2-3 modules and replace those with my worst modules that I have done previously.

    Also would I have to attend a college or can I just sign up for exams and study at home. I prefer to study at home.

    After doing 2 years of engineering I am sure your engineering maths has supercedes A level maths. So there is no point repeating a levels again.

    When I will apply to Universities in 2015 they will look at my A-levels. Even though I have completed 2 years at University of Leicester they don't count as a full qualification. I might also aim for a better University. Yes my maths levels are superior to what they were back in 2012 but I still got a C for Maths. Since I'm so much better at Maths now I could easily bring it up to a A
