    One of my friends from school repeated Year 12 (DDEE the first time and I think he ended up with ABB or AAB) and is now in Cardiff Uni doing Chemistry. He worked really hard on his personal statement though!

    One of my friends got UUUU in her first year at A level, retook the year and she's going into her second year at Bristol.

    But she had no social life during the Year 12 and 13 but I'm pretty sure when she walked out with A*AA she thought it was worth it

    I essentially resat year 13 as I had a gap year retaking exams. It would have been easier retaking year 12 as it would have saved me a lot of money lol, the only reason I didn't go back to college for another year was because I was on holiday and missed late enrollment. Still, it teaches you to work on your own and independently. Anyway, to answer your question I did that and got into Sheffield uni for law, despite having a very poor set of as results as at that time j wasn't really interested

    There's plenty of good non-RG universities by the way, such as Surrey

    Yh, Surrey is one of the unis I want to go to. I asked this question just to get an indication of how well I could do if I work my absolute hardest
