Hey, so I have started year 12 and currently thinking whether i should retake my GCSES. For all of my GCSES I have achieved grade 4's including maths and English and I think I could have done way better due to my circumstances I didn't. Now that i am in year 12 I am starting uni next year I am wondering whether it is a good idea for me to retake my GCSES specificically math english lit and lang and wondering if there would be any university that would looking at my GCSES. For those who are at uni i am wondering what is your guys opinions

If you go to UCAS site and type in Psychology for 21/22 you can look at unis you like and check entry requirements. Then give a couple of unis a ring and run your grades past them. This will give you an idea of whether retakes esp maths is needed. Had a quick look and you might be okay.

Did you find the info you needed. And do not be shy about calling up unis. Quite often they will give you the email of the course leader /admissions team to ask about your particular circumstances.
