I am thinking about retaking year 12 for a few reasons:
I was predicted AAB in AS (quarantine And my mental health really affected my grades tbh) but I need a prediction of A*AA So if I retake I feel like I would have an advantage and more time to perfect my grades. I also want to change one of my subjects because I realise it is not for me and the thought of doing it for another year sucks. My only question is, does this affect applying to uni? I want to apply to Russel group universities primarily, but I heard some universities don’t allow this? Which ones don’t and how can I bypass this? Considered doing a gap year but I really don’t want to go forward with these predicted grades and a subject I dislike.

Many thanks

Whether to retake year 12 or not will be influenced by your school and whether they are willing to let you redo year 12.
Unis make up their own policy on resits, some RGs wont mind and others will, so its up to you to id the uni you are interested in and their policy on resits. It may differ from course to course.
