    I received an A in AS English Language but dropped to a B for A Level. My goal is to study Law at LSE, so is it worth it to resit both AS and A Level to pull the grade up to an A or A*? (I did English a year ahead)

    How much do they focus on your academic record (level of achievement throughout the years)? Are resits badly looked upon?

    What did you say you were sitting exams wise in your UCAS form? Any intention to resit modules or an entire AS should have been declared when you first applied.

    If you change the exams you're entered onto after applying and receiving an offer then your universities are within their rights to amend or even withdraw their offer. They usually wouldn't do this but you'd be advised to seek advice from them directly BEFORE committing to any undeclared resits.

    I am going to apply for 2017 entrance, so I've not yet submitted my applications. I sat my English exams in the October/November series, so I have a choice of resitting them BOTH this October/November again. Do you suggest to resit English, as it's quite a crucial subject for law? Or will reaching the prerequisites (A*AA) in other preferred subjects be okay?

    I've heard the resits for A Level are not accepted like for AS.
