    I got BBB in my A-levels and thinking of taking a gap year and working (in the city) and resit my grades to at least get ABB/ AAB.... As in the future I will be looking for graduate programes ect , Im kinda afraid my grades will be considered 'low' in comparison to other 'higher achieving candidates'

    Don't know if this is a worthwhile decision... as I already have a confirmed place @ University of Kent.....

    Hi

    Firstly congratulations at gaining a place at Kent!

    In the long run most employers won't really focus on your A levels, instead it's the degree classification which will be a big part of the decision making, so if you work hard throughout university and focus on getting a 2.i or a first, then you should be fine when applying for graduate positions.

    Hope this helped
