    I want to do law and try to apply to Oxbridge. My GCSE results were;
    English lit: A
    English Lang: A*
    Maths: A
    Science triple: ABA
    Graphics: A*
    PE: B
    History: A*
    Art: B
    Spanish: D :/

    I was wondering whether it was worth retaking my Spanish to get an A or A* to try harder for Oxbridge or whether they wouldn't really care?

    My predicted a level grades are AAA but I'm going for A*AA at least if I can.

    Can you resit your GCSE now?
    Do you think re-sitting it would impact on your a level work?

    Also I know sometimes oxbridge aren't keen on retakes. I'm not sure if they care about GCSE retakes, you may have to ask them.

    Yeah they probably don't really care for retakes, thanks for the advice
