    I just received my AS results

    Physics - B 2marks from A
    Chem - B
    Maths - B - Panicked in C2, 90UMS in stats tho
    Further Maths - D

    Let me explain Further maths, my school currently doesn't believe its a real a level(I know) so its after school every Monday and Wednesday for 40 minutes, would unis take that into consideration.

    Ultimately the question is, Should i retake the year if i want to go do Engineering or Natural sciences at UCL, York, Imperial, Queens or any russel group university.

    If it's purely based on your grades you want to resit then I advise you not to. If I were you, I'd continue to A2 and resit all of the exams you wanted to do better in. I did this and came out with AAB from AS grades of BBC. I'm sure you'll be accepted by a Russell Group uni but make sure your personal statement is strong and that your teachers predict you high grades (AAB at least). Concerning your further maths, uni's don't care unless you have extenuating circumstances (eg one of your parents have died). I'd advise you to drop further maths as it'll make your workload for A2 insane.

    You probably won't get into UCL or Imperial anyways as they usually want straight A's first time round.
