Since the rules have changed about being able to decline an A Level grade (i.e. you MUST cash them in), how do re-takes now work?

Say you get your A2 results and miss out on a grade by a few marks and just want to retake a particular unit, is this now possible?

You can just retake, regardless of certification.

You can still retake any particular module you just cant decline a qualification. If it is an A2 module then it is likely you will have to stay back a year or get your paper remarked.

Is it true that say you retake one (or more) A2 exam and so technically spend 3 years doing A Levels then only lower league unis will look at you?

I think that may not be true. The top Uni probably wont but the middle and the bottom would. One way round it may be to do the whole of that subject again in one year. Then you wont have any resits on your application
