    Basically, I got a C in A Level German because I was stupidly lazy before I got to uni and did barely any work. I hate putting this on my CV.

    Therefore, I really wanna resit A Level German, just because I know I'd quite easily get an A*/A.

    Is there any point in this if I now have a first class degree in German?

    What kind of jobs are you applying for? A C is still considered to be a good grade.

    In most cases, employers will look at your most recent qualification, which would be your degree. Seeing as you got a first, I don't see much point in resitting the A-Level.

    There is no point. IBanking jobs will just filter you regardless, unless you went to a target university in which case they likely wouldn't anyway, and it's not a relevant A-level for GEM or similar.

    If you were planning on pursuing something related to the language then you would be better off taking a course to develop that language further rather than rehash your prior experiences.
