    Is there really a big difference between an A and an A*? I achieve an A in English language but don't know whether to resit for an A* in the summer as I feel it will just be added stressed when I have many more exams at that time some being 6 science! (Triple science). Any opinions??

    I take it you're referring to GCSEs?:curious: Employers wouldn't be too worried about the different. And only very very few universities might view it as less favourable when compared to other applicants.

    The only difference is subjectivity.

    The difference is not as significant as say a B and a C for example.

    If its going to be detrimental to your other subjects then its not worth it imo
