    i got 5 A's (history, RE, Biology, Chemistry,Product design), 5B's (english lit, french,physics, bus studies and maths) and a C. Honestly I'm a little disappointed. I had my heart set on at least one A*and law being a sector I want to work in- I was especially upset when I saw that I got a C in English language,I was 3 marks off a B. Is getting a remark worth it? or should I resit English language and hope for a higher grade? also what universities can i get into if i want an to get into an LLB law course? i had places like kings college, lse and exeter in mind. BTW how did everyone else do?

    Go onto UCAS or a university website and look at their requirements. They will state their A Levels and GCSE requirements, if applicable. Remarking doesn't guarantee you extra marks and may drop you down - though it can be frustrating. Last year I was 3 raw marks off an A* in English Lit and English Lang, but I preferred to stick with what I had despite it being lower than my predicted A*.

    It's important to remember those results are still good - and A Levels are most likely more worth your time and attention that resitting a GCSE for the sake of a grade.
