    I have an unconditional for Uni in September and I'm not finishing my A-levels. I am worried I may not do so well in certain exams. Is it possible to resit these while at Uni? What do you think?

    I think the idea is that as long as you negotiate with a registered centre to sit the exam in, you can retake/take modules despite the cohort you're in; as long as the specification is still being run (for the case of retakes).

    But if you're worried about not doing well in exams then would that not prove useful to you in knowing where to improve? :P

    Yes it is possible, you just need to find an exam centre (=any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a private candidate and pay them - where you took your A levels is likely to be the easiest and cheapest place if they will accept you. Elsewhere expect to pay around £50 per unit. However, from my experience most people who initially intend to do this don't bother in the end.
