    I've just started my A levels and I got a C in maths at GCSE instead of my predicted A/B. I know I can do the work I was just too focused of my other subjects.
    The universities courses that I'm looking at require an A or a B in my maths, if I resit will I be able to go to those universities or do they discard resits and a resit would be a major waste of my time?? Thanks!! X

    You should be fine - lots of people resit for precisely this reason: to improve their grades

    Im not sure about the very very top universities but for the vast majority resits are fine, all they are bothered about is your final grade.
