    Hi, I start stats, econ and finance at UCL next month. I achieved AAA in Maths, Further Maths and Economics at A Level and I'm just wondering whether it would be worth resitting A couple of exams next year to get them to A*?

    I was pretty close this year so it shouldn't be too much workload to go over a few past papers, and I'd only need to resit one module from each subject.

    Is this worth my while if I'm aiming for high finance?

    Its up to you but i cannot think of a single reason why you should bother. A-levels are there to get you into top uni. Job done. Employers look at a levels but ur are already excellent.

    Im at ucl too doing engineering. I got AAA too and they seemed fairly standard not too great. Most people have at least 1 A*.

    There are much better things to devote your time to at uni than A levels, your current grades are fine and I don't see how getting a few A*s is going to help you in the slightest.

    Nope. Would be much more useful for your employability if you used that time to study for your degree and come out with a 2.1 or a first
