    Hey - i'm currently studying at uni (3rd/placement year), and was thinking about retaking my maths a2 module - purely out of pride.

    I remember in maths in AS I got A-B-B averaging a high B, but in A2 I had somewhat of a breakdown and got D-U-U. My overall grade in maths averaged as a D. Luckily my other a-levels were strong B's, so I got accepted into uni anyway.

    I'm just thinking - I deal with maths in uni a lot now as i'm studying finance, and could easily pass these exams if I could do it again. Having a ABB would look a lot better than a DBB on my CV when applying for a job in the finance sector.

    Is there any way I can just retake the a2 exams, while revising at home? How much money would it cost? I'm looking online and can't find the answers, I don't even know if it is possible.

    Thanks for anyone who can reply to this - I really appreciate it.

    Yes it is possible, and honestly very simple.

    Which exam board are you with? Go on their website and they will have a list of places (schools and colleges mainly) that allow external candidates. Each place will charge different fees so you will want to call a few that are close to you and see what they say. You pay the fees, you take the exams, you get the grades.

    Good luck
