do colleges ask about your a level grades and then potentially reject you , or do they just check your GCSEs , when you are retaking the same a levels?

If you're retaking your A Levels, the college will want to know what grades you've got (both A Level and GCSE), and will be interested to know the reasons why you are wanting to resit them, and why you think you didn't achieve the grades you needed first time round. They aren't likely to reject you solely on the grades you've achieved, but they will want to speak with you with regard to what you think you can do differently this time to work out whether you have the potential to get better results this time.

They could reject you if they feel that you aren't motivated, that you don't have a good reason for getting low grades first time round, that your circumstances haven't changed, and so on. There is no set criteria for rejections, the decision is completely up to the person who controls admissions. They may have an online admissions policy you could read, but this may not cover resits. All I can advise is to be honest with them about your reasons for getting low grades last time and explain to them what has changed now, or what you will do differently this time.
