FAQs for A level retakes
Even if you are in a position where you can retake, it doesn’t mean that you should retake. It may not be for you; but there is no disgrace if you need to try again.
The question of whether you should retake should be central to your strategy for further education. Of course you will need to retake if you have definitely decided on a university or career that requires a certain set of results. However, if you really have not performed well – for example, in Mathematics or Physics – ask yourself if you are studying the right subjects.
Before you make a final decision, here are some questions (and answers), which may help you:
- Is there still a place available at your preferred university? Answer: contact the admissions’ department – you may be lucky.
- Do you think you can improve your grades? Answer: you need to be honest about how hard you worked.
- Is it worth asking for a remark? Answer: be careful: your grade can go down as well as up. Obtain a copy of your examination scripts though. What you actually wrote, rather than what you thought you wrote, might be a revelation!
- Do you still want to pursue your previously chosen course? Answer: your preferences may well have changed since you applied to university. Now is a good opportunity to change direction.
- Is there an alternative course or university which you can access through clearing? Answer: the obvious danger here is choosing second best. Taking a gap year, improving your grades, earning some money, and planning some travel may be more beneficial for you.
Retaking A Levels can be a good option if you want to improve your grades, or if you are keen to pursue a certain subject or career path. It can be a great way to prove to universities or employers that you are serious about pursuing a specific degree or career. Retaking A Levels can also give you the opportunity to revise and learn in more depth, giving you a stronger foundation for future study.
However, it can be a stressful and expensive process and you should consider whether the benefits outweigh the potential drawbacks. For example, it could delay your entry into university or cause you to miss out on certain opportunities due to time constraints. It is also important to consider whether the grades you receive are likely to have a significant impact on your prospects. Before making the decision to retake your A Levels, you should carefully weigh up the pros and cons and consider any other potential paths available to you.
When you retake your A levels, you will usually repeat the entire programme, i.e. re-take the entire A level course, and then resit the exam at the end.
At Greene’s, your A level retake programme is designed to fit your specific needs. Tuition is individual or in groups of two or three people, depending on your A level resit setting and academic objectives. While retaking your A levels, your Personal Tutor guides you through your university application re-submission step-by-step. Your Personal Tutor advises you on the most suitable courses and universities available to you and helps you construct a compelling application to secure your place.
If A Level results day turned out to be a disappointment, rather than a cause for celebration, try not to worry. Give yourself time to think and consider your next step toward retaking A level exams, which can be done every year in June. Speak to your Head of Sixth Form or class tutors for more details on when you can retake exams for individual subjects, or check the subject specification on the exam board website. If you decide to study at school, you’ll need to speak to your teacher to see if you’re able to retake the course.
You can retake your A levels at Greene’s where we can design a retake programme with you that is delivered face-to-face, entirely online, or a hybrid between online and offline tuition.
No matter which route you choose, retaking A Levels is a great way to improve your grades and get you into the university of your choice.
