    Hi,I checked on the UoE website and it said it'd prefer students who hadn't taken resits but would consider them.
    I'm not sure whether it would be worth me applying or not.
    I plan to take a few resits during my gap year to bring my results for bio,chem and maths up to AAA, at least. AAA is what I'd be predicted on my UCAS form. I'm applying for chemical engineering and have done quite a lot of things related to the course and extracurricular stuff. I'm also from a low income household (..not sure if they give any contextual offers or not?). I contacted the admissions team but haven't heard back yet. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone thinks there'd be any point in applying here or not?

    I'm a little confused by what you mean. Do you think I would have a chance of getting an offer? I don't want to set myself up for a rejection aha.

    Apply. My cousin got BBB after retaking her A levels and still got into Ed to study psychology.

    Oh that's great! Do you mind me asking what grades she needed for psychology?

    I would say do not to waste a place on your options as they dont take retakes unless your predicted A* in maths A in chem A in Bio so you would be better of to apply to places like manchester nottingham surrey ucl loughbourgh sheffeild which always accept retakes without an issue
