Hello, I recieved my A-Level results today and didn't too well, but as expected. (CCD) I have an offer from Keele for History with a foundation year bc of my bad results. I'm a bit miffed as I know I can do better, I was stupidly lazy during exam time. Im not sure whether to take the year off and do loads of retakes or do a couple during Uni to bring it up a bit. Is it possible to retake a few modules while at university, during my social sciences year as an external candidate at some centre? And do employers look down upon those that retake a levels after the 2 years? Basically i'm worried about how my poor A Levels may come back to haunt me when job searching in the future. Advice please, thanks.

not many jobs care about qualifications, if you don't want to go to uni yet then don't. take some time off from education and be happy

I'm in the same boat i got an offer but I'm not a 100% enthusiastic with going because of my grades this year and I'm scared I'll lose motivation at uni like i did this year at a2 if i don't improve myself. I also fear because of my lack of effort i haven't learnt as much as those around me and will be going to uni or a slightly underconfident back foot. My advice would be to do what makes you happy. Not many jobs take into account a levels but if you'd be happier bumping them up now I'd do it whilst not at uni by taking a year out as otherwise it could interfere with your uni course and then when you're happier you'll be confident to go to uni and get that first. 👊👊👊 Good luck in whatever you choose though
