    A2 finisher here

    -I have conditional offer from Imperial for Computer Science undergraduate(3 years)
    -A2 results were released yesterday and I didn't make it
    -The requirements are A* for Maths, A for Further Maths, A for Physics and Grade 2 in STEP I.
    -I got A* for Maths, A* for Further Maths, B for Physics and Grade 1 in STEP I.
    -So as you can see two of my subjects are above requirements while one is below the requirement.

    -My total UMS in Physics is 472, 8 marks away from A.
    -And because of the B in Physics, neither Imperial nor Warwick(which is my insurance choice) accepts me.

    -So now, instead of Clearing, I am thinking about taking a one-year A-Level(which is, apparantly taking two years' A-Level in one year) and apply for Imperial again.

    -(Already asked for remarks and waiting for the results.)

    -So my question is that, does anyone think this is a good idea? And will Imperial accept second-time applicants? Will I be at a significant disadvantage here? Are there anyone with similar situation?

    I don't think being a re-applicant puts you at a disadvantage but what is your one year A level in? Are you retaking?

    My college (Bellerbys College Brighton) offers One-Year A-Level which is essentially two-year A-Level, except you squezze everything into one year.

    And since I've just finished A2(of the "regular two-year A-Level"), I supposed it is probably a form of retaking...

    But anyway, do you think maybe the bar will be higher, or that the A-Level grade requirements I receive(that is, if I receive a conditional offer again) will be higher? Because obviously when Imperial goes over my UCAS application, they will be able to see that I've already finished A-Level once...

    If you're essentially retaking then you should be fine.
