    Yes. If you're confident you'd have time to put in the work. Are you aiming for medicine by any chance?

    You'll need that A then . Entries for November resits are at the beginning of October so you should speak to your school/college as soon as possible. Best of luck.

    Some do, some don't. They are more likely to accept re-sits in English than they are in Sciences.

    Have a look here http://www.medschools.ac.uk/SiteColl...al-schools.pdf for Medicine. For Dentistry you'll have to look at individual Universities. On the whole they're not keen on re-sits BUT with excellent A-Level grades and if you meet the minimum requirements and do well with admissions tests you should be good. What did you get in Maths? Re-sits in English and Maths might not look so good.

    I would re-sit the English and aim get at least a B. Most Universities are interested in Maths and Science GCSEs and some state that you need a B in English - with good A-Levels and entry admission scores, as well as the GCSE requirements (even if one is a re-sit) you can't go far wrong.

    I wouldn't add any extra pressure. Re-sit the Maths and don't worry about the English if you don't need it. A2 work is demanding and you don't want your A-Level grades to suffer as ultimately they are far more important.
