    Hello,

    I sat my A-levels last year but didn't get good grades. Now I've started a full time job but I've decided to try again to get into uni. I would like to do medicine but I know medical school don't like resits. Because I'm doing all my A-levels again (AS and A2) and they're different exam boards, would I need to tell the university/ would it still matter?

    Thank you

    Yes, you need to declare all exams on your application and not to do so is regarded as fraudulent. You won't get far in medicine with a fraudulent start. Don't even consider it.

    Okay, what subjects?

    I'm not sure whether they'll accept resits with those grades the first time round, I think it's best to call them up right now and check. Explain your situation to them
