    Hello,
    I was wondering whether anyone knows about the new A level resit policy for linear A levels. If I was to resit my A levels and get a worse grade, would the worse grade count or would the better older grade count?
    Thanks

    I'm almost sure it's the best grade which counts but you need to bare in mind that certain employers don't accept retakes.

    You will have both certificates and you will have to admit to both if you apply to universities but over time you may be able to 'forget' the worse one.
