Okay, so, about 5 years ago I left sixth form early because I simply wasn't coping too well (social anxiety etc), and soon started working.
5 years later, I now find myself sat at work dreaming instead of studying what I am most passionate about, now that I've had the time to realise 'who I am'.
I want to apply for Psychology & Linguistics, but in my GCSEs I only got a B in Maths, taken a year early. I do have the option to retake my Maths GCSE (for a price), but I'm wondering if it will look dodgy to them if all my other GCSEs are 2009-2011, and randomly my Maths is, say, 2017? Would I be better sticking with my B that I earned a year early? It's also probably worth mentioning that I went to quite an appalling school, and so the overall awarded grades for my peers were low and this will most likely flag up on their Contextual Data system.
Also, if I were to retake, would I submit my grades to UCAS as a B in Maths 2010, and also a (hopefully) A* in Maths '2017', or would the second sitting override the first? And what about if the second were an IGCSE instead of simply a GCSE, could they both then be submitted?
Any help/advice/opinion would be very much appreciated!
But did you bother to watch?
