Recently I resat my Maths GCSE for which I achieved a B in June, and was hoping for an A, so resat. However, I have heard that the top Universities (like Cambridge), don't like 'resit candidates', so will my resitting of Maths affect any potential application I send to Cambridge, or any other University for that matter? My dream is to study Law at Cambridge, will my resitting play against me in achieving this? Thankyou in advance. Excuse the appalling 'Cambridge' spelling in title, I cannot change it now.

Cambridge accepts students have 'bad days' so they wouldn't mind what you resit really. As long as you meet the A level requirements from Cambridge, I'm sure they wouldn't mind to be honest.

Good luck for your application when the time comes!
