    I just wonder that if I can stay in Alevel course another year if I do not able to get the grades these universities ask for.
    Will the grades I already have be valid until then?

    You can re-sit A-levels, but if you fail to meet your uni offer and they don't accept you or offer a deferred entry then you will have to reapply through UCAS.

    Yes, you can. It is always worth contacting the university if you fall slightly short of the requirements of your offer. Depending on the performance of the other prospective students, they may still offer you a play. If this does not work out, you can enter Clearing. But yes, there were quite a few people in my Sixth Form who did this, but I wasn't one of them. You may like to go to a different college, a tutorial college or enter as a private candidate if you are not comfortable with the idea of staying at your current institution for an additional year, though. Remember too that the grade requirements can sometimes be higher for retake candidates. Good luck
