    Basically, I've always been quite good at maths, was in top set for middle school but didn't really do too much work. I sat my GCSE maths a year early but missed an A* by a couple marks (got a E for my coursework:rolleyes: ). I then went to on to do Additional Maths GCSE, got an A (happy with that), and then AS Maths , and got an A in that.

    Now i reckon i could very easily get an A* for GCSE maths now with no revision. Is it worth resitting?

    I currently have 5A* and 6A for GCSE, which is alright but i'm looking to get a place at Oxbridge, Durham, Edinburgh etc... for English, (doesn't really need maths)

    Basically, is it worthwhile redoing it? Would be an extra A* but the certificate date would obviously seem strange.

    Errr whats the point? You have high grades in A level and it isnt as if you need it for uni. Just be happy with what you got

    nah, I wouldn't bother. An a grade at a level will show that you are good enough. I would focus on your chosen subject.
