    The side of me that thinks I might fail my A-levels miserably has a few questions:

    1. Can you go to an AAA university with resits?

    2. If so, how are you supposed to get an offer if your AS grades are awful. Even though you are resitting and know you can do well next time.

    3. How many times can you apply for a course? If so, how often

    4. If I want to apply to a university after my resits, will it have to be year later than normal?

    Many thanks

    1. Yes. They expect you to retake at least one exam. I'm retaking one and aiming for an A*AA course.

    2. They take into account your GCSE, AS and predicted grades as well as your reference and personal statement. So if your AS results aren't so good, hopefully you can make it up in another area of your application.

    3. As many times as you want. You need to be continually improving your application though. You can apply once per year.

    4. Not necessarily. It depends on whether you get good enough grades to take your A2s whilst retaking your ASs.
