    I finished my A levels in 2014, and I'm currently completing an undergraduate degree in Geography, hopefully graduating in July.

    I've now decided that I want to go into physiotherapy, but don't have the grades at A level to go straight into it. My A-Level result in Biology was a C grade, and I need at least a B to get into university again for a second undergraduate degree.

    What is the best way of retaking my A-Level? Is it expensive? Can I just retake certain modules?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

    None of my business really, but just some questions to consider - Why do you want to do a second undergraduate degree? How will you pay for it?

    I changed fields after graduating, could you not do a masters in physiotherapy?

    The masters courses require you to have an undergraduate degree in a related field, which geography is not. I've spent so long trying to figure out what I want to do, and I keep coming back to physiotherapy.
    The course itself is covered by the NHS I believe, /'d as for a student loan, I plan on living at home so will not have to take out another.

    You can retake individual units of your original A level to improve your overall grade but your last opportunity to do this will be summer 2017 as a new specification has been introduced. You may be limited in where you can retake them as not every centre will choose to offer them so if you can fit it in with your degree finals sort out a centre asap. If you don't do it this summer then you will need to retake the full A level in summer 2018 which will be expensive.
