So i'm currently in a rough boat, im deciding either to resit my computer science which i've gotten a C for either in autumn or summer, i feel like i was unfairly judged on my grade, i had some extenuating circumstances which my school had not taken in to consideration, but it is what it is. anyways i decided to resit quite late the computer science a level ocr paper 1 is october 6 whereas paper 2 is october 12, do you think there is enough time to revise all the topics? how do i work this around i also have to learn like 1-2 topics which we hadn't covered. I'm pretty sure they don't take NEA into consideration for our grade, is this the same for the summer if i resit? I'm also currently studying 2 intensive alevels in one year which is quite rough, I'm stressing a bit, so if anyone could possibly help and advise me i would be grateful! Do you think the Universities differetiate between the Autumn Exams (2021) and Summer Exams(2022)? Will the University prefer one over the other? iS computer sicence nea taken in to consideration for summer or not like autumn ones i think

I mean its possible. Grade boundries will be low this autumn so you should be able to improve your grade. If worst case happens and your grade doesnt improve you still keep your summer grade. Whilst universities prefer you to take them in one sitting only really the top top unis really care about this. Esepcially given the circumstances

Youll have to do an NEA, higher grade boundaries, therefore you will need to put more time into getting a better grade. If you sit it now and try your best there is nothing to loose.
