hey there...a quick question again really.

ok im aware that some of my unis im applying to expect a student to take his subjects during a 2 year period with no resits. I completed my A-levels with grades AABB with no resits. However, one of my alevels was basically a **** subject so i decided to take an alevel, law, in a year during my gap year. Would this exclude me from unis who expect studies to be done during a two year period? thanks

Probably, no offence but taking one a-level at a totally different time is far easier than taking 3 at once ... even if you resit the odd module in the 3. Sorry. That's how i view it personally, however .. I dunno really, only time will tell for you I guess! You already have the grades for your AAB unis after all (assuming one of those A's isnt a dodgy subject - ie GS or your other "****" subject, and if the AA is in good subjects, andonly one of the B's in a lesser subject you might be OK ... the problem is if the BB is in GS and a **** subject!).

Illness that affects your studies is the clearest of mitigating circumstances that could affect your exam performance, so yes, it probably will be taken into consideration.

Nb as he quickly resorts to praise when realises he is defeated. A common tactic of the male gender, the supplicating ones who won't stand up for themselves anyway.

I have answered this exact same question for you before, universities that have the policy are so competitive they can afford to be choosy. Your mitigating circumstances aren't going to make that much difference as an illness hardly made you choose Film Studies did it?
