Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me, I was due to sit an extra A level this year (only did two last year) due to pretty compelling mitigating circumstances during my A levels which I can provide evidence of. However, I am a private candidate and can't get a grade so am forced to do the autumn exams. the results won't come out until after spring week deadlines. My uni (a semi target) has let me in anyway this year so this year will be my only shot at spring weeks. I have an A in the subject at AS that I'm due to sit the exam in and I have two other As at A-level so I'm hoping that will hold some weight. Obviously this is out of my control but how would I go about bring it up on my cv/cover letter?? I really don't want to be filtered out at the UCAS point stage as had covid not happened this wouldn't have been a problem.
The rest of my CV is pretty strong and have done some finance related work on my gap year so I'm going to give it a shot even with my A level problem.
Also, If I'm unsuccessful in gaining any spring weeks is it worth seeing if I can extend my degree by doing a year abroad and applying again next year or just taking the L and trying to get some volunteering experience, leadership positions in societies, cold calling firms etc?
