    So retake one A-level while doing a foundation year?
    More clarification needed.

    What significance is the A level to the foundation year? Is it part of the offer criteria and you are asking if they will let you on the foundation with a promise you will resit? If thats what you mean then I highly doubt it.

    If you mean will they consider an application via ucas with you putting you are resitting, then yes.

    If you mean is it possible to do the work of a foundation degree, which you qualify for and simultaneously revise for a resit of an A level, then yes, but check exam dates dont clash.

    Yes that is what I mean, If it's possible to do the work of a foundation degree, which you qualify for and simultaneously revise for a resit of an A level. I will make sure to check exam dates plus would this be difficult or will the content of a foundation year be similar to A-Level so it's easier to grasp on?

    In terms of retaking A-level Psychology, I know most of the content so I wouldn't need to spend much time revising it.

    I want to retake Psychology while doing a foundation year in Psychology so I was wondering if it would be easier or harder to revise both at the same time along with getting a part time job?
