Can i retake a module and use the original score for some unis? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, in my AS, i got A*ab in maths, econ and physics, and doing further maths this year.

    Apparently i am not allowed to retake even a single module for LSE economics or econometrics, however a few retakes are allowed for cambridge economics tho.

    So what i was thinking was to retake physics unit 2, which i got a C in(i was having a very bad day, was getting high As in school mock exams) and put the original grades in UCAS application but just mention the new grade in my reference.

    So my question is if retake and get an A in AS physics unit 2, am i allowed to put the original grade in UCAS application?

    You can retake according to LSE, but they prefer students who have done well on the first sitting. In short, when you retake you'll need to put both attempts down on UCAS, and LSE will be able to see your first attempt and probably judge you on that attempt as apposed to your final result.
