2nd year transfers

Does anyone know If it's possible to complete second year of uni but then transfer to another uni and redo second year?
It’s possible, but like all transfers it depends on the incoming uni being agreeable to it.
It’s more common than transferring into year 3
1) Any transfer relies on spaces being available - and many 2nd year cohorts are over-full because of covid inflated grades.
2) Many Unis will want the same A levels grades that they wanted for first year entry - regardless of your 1st year results
3) An extra year may impact your eligibility for Student Finance for the entire degree.
