I'm resiting an English Module, i nearly failed it and i know i can do better. Overall i got a C, i want to be a journalist though and I'm worried that having a C and not a B in English might lower my chances. What do you think?

Can you resit them one you have had the A level certified? What was your degree in? If you did an A level in your degree subject then your bound to get an A.
I do think it would be worth it to get those extra ucas points if it means you can apply to graduate opportunities. How would the old ucas points work with the new ucas points though?

I got the outcome of my remark today - the UMS went up by 2 marks (the raw went up by 1) which meant the subject grade remained at a B - I am now even closer to an A - 3 UMS marks off (thats 2 raw marks...how frustrating! )
Will I get a refund, or was that only if the subject grade improved?
Also, I guess my only options now are
i) Reject the A2 level grade and then resit the unit in either Jan or June as an external student - anyone aware how much this would cost? And I would have to hope it don't come at the same time as Uni examinations
ii) Just leave it be.
I understand A-Level results will be a thing of the past once I start Uni
but I am concerned about how employers will look upon the grades I got.
I will email the Uni now and see what they recommend. Then I will ring the college examinations office.
Who should I be contacting at the Uni?
