Resitting AS and A Levels

Where applicants are re-sitting AS units to improve their final grades within the two-year period of A Level completion, their application will normally be considered equally alongside other applications.

Applicants who are re-sitting AS units or A2 exams and are, as a result, taking longer than two years to complete their qualifications, may be set a higher entry requirement than is standard. Alternatively, applicants applying for highly competitive courses may not be considered equally when compared with those who are not re-sitting. In all cases, we may ask for further information about the reasons for re-sitting to inform our overall review of the application. Each case is considered individually.

Please note that our School of Medicine does not consider applicants who are re-sitting final A2 examinations.
