Is it possible to get into a top uni after retaking A levels? Watch
I'm retaking them all hoping to get AAA, however I may only be predicted ABB/BBB (which is more than fair tbh).
I normally get A/B in Biology and Maths mock exams however I just crumbled in the real exams, Physics I deserve what I got.
I was wondering if it were possible to get an offer from a decent uni like Manchester, Queen Mary, Surrey or Southampton for an economics related course which are normally at AAB/ABB.
On all their websites it says it accepts retakes but I'm worried they'll just straight up reject me after seeing my grades. Other retakers probably only have to go up 1 or 2 grades, whereas I need an overhaul.
My personal statement is looking good but it's just the grades I am worried about
only serious answers please
May I ask which course you are planning to apply to?
The question is, do you really think you can improve to AAA? You said you “deserved what you got” for Physics, so what would really change or make you work harder this time round?
