    They won't look at your A-Level grades as long as they meet the standard offer, same goes for GCSEs. It's probably going to be very competitive as there are only 13 places available.

    Because you are retaking I'm not sure if you are eligible? Because you are predicted A*AA which is much higher than the maximum ABB for the A108 course. This would make you eligble for the standard course... But I don't know since their retake policy is not clearly stated on their website, so I might be wrong. Otherwise, of couse you stand a chance, as long as your personal statement is good.

    Its alright, I called them up to confirm. They said that since I met their requirements first time, they will be using my first time results. Not my retake.
