Hey there guys,

I'm confused so would appreciate some help. Basically, I finished A levels this summer and got CDD. I'm on a gap year and so reapplying to uni for the academic year 2018/19. I was wondering if I should resit the two a levels I achieved grade "D" (approx. cost to resit is £200 ) or go for a foundation year at uni.

If ypu can get onto the foundation course you want to get onto now, then I don't see a reason to retake.

I wouldn’t do foundation year, take a gap year a result your A Levels. Try to find a part time job for the year.

Think about what you want to do after uni. Some jobs (especially grad schemes) have minimum requirements for A Levels. If you think you might want to go that route, resitting A Levels would be better.

It's also getting very late to be thinking about a foundation year.
