    I'm getting really worried because I didn't know until know that they care. I've retaken my AS apart from Maths where I still resat a module, and I'm retaking A2 Maths which I got a B in.

    Which universities are you applying to?

    Most don't care, it's only really the very top universities that do.

    Well because of resits I haven't applied for some of the top ones, like St Andrew's which seems really good. From the one's I've applied to only 1 seems to mention it, but even though the others don't it just makes sense that if the admissions officer sees my application and someone who didn't retake they'd pick the non retaker.

    Ring them up and ask them what their policy is on resitting modules and retaking Yr12. Most will have a clear policy that they'll be happy to tell you about (or they wont because they really genuinely care more about your final results than how long you took to get there).
