Bhaal Why are you retaking if you got ABC thats really not that bad. Also does it make a difference to university entrance for you? When I did my A Levels the offers were conditional in that they wanted you to have a certain set of grades at first sitting. If you retook your A Levels most unis made you higher offers. However this was in the days before modular A Levels so does the same apply. Also do you have to put all original and resit grades on the UCAS we used to have to do that as well which would make it pretty pointless to retake unless you had done really badly.

I applied originally for management at UMIST, and Business with Maths at Manchester. I got in. However I felt that I didn't wanna persue a role in management, I wanted to practise law instead, hence my decision to re-apply this year for law. You say that ABC isn't that bad, to me I feel that I have underachieved somewhat. So I have decided to resit some modules at college. I already have an unconditional offer from Leicester Uni, and a conditional from Sheffiled (AAB).

Is it the norm these days then for people to resit after A Levels? It used to be very uncommon there was only one guy who resat at my school and the reason for that was because he completely failed. He went from UUE to AAA. So well worth it I think.

If all else fails, you can always get a wonderful and fulfilling career as a garbage man or pamphlet distributer.
