    Hi! I am re-sitting Bio and Chem A level (linear); hoping to get 2 Bs up to As, but worrying that I won't make it as I'm working full time and don't have much study time. If I come a complete cropper and my grades goes down, are they the ones which I will have to use for UCAS? Also does any one know of any good study guides for the new exams? Any tips much appreciated!

    If you retake and get a worse grade, you still have the original better one. When you apply through UCAS you will be required to state your original grades and indicate you are retaking to obtain new, hopefully better grades. Most universities will accept your best result.

    Thanks so much. Been looking to see when the 2017 A level papers will be on website, but can't find a date. They're available to teachers, but I'm not at school anymore....
