A Level Retakes

A level retakes are available for students who want to retake their A levels. A level retakes are best for students who have already taken all or part of the exam but have been disappointed with their results. If this scenario applies to you then A level retakes are likely to be the best option for you.

Many students find it useful to do both courses at the same time when enrolling on our One Year Intensive A levels course. This is because it allows them to apply AS skills that are fresh in their minds, rather than trying to remember material that they learnt a year before. There is a possibility of studying a completely new subject for an intensive A level course; however, this is very difficult unless you are exceptionally dedicated.

Most universities will regard a decision to do A level retakes as a sign of determination, perseverance and ambition. However, any student considering retaking their A levels should always ask the relevant university if a new application is welcome and indicate what qualifications may now be required.

If you narrowly miss your offer, you should contact the university’s admissions department, who may still be happy to accept you. If not, the university may offer you a place on a course closely related to your first choice. During busy application times, you may have to be patient before contacting the department.

Normally we recommend that students who want to achieve the highest grades enrol on our two year course of study. However, students that we consider to be hardworking and dedicated, places are offered in the A level retakes course where our teaching and learning expertise equip them to achieve their full potential

Why should I retake my exams?

If you are not satisfied with your previous results or need a certain qualification as a minimum requirement for continuing your studies, you should perhaps do the A levels again.

Examples include anyone who missed out on their university course of choice by not achieving the right A Level results in the required subject.

Even if you’re looking to move out of education, many employers view good A level results as prerequisites.


Who can do it?

Anyone can retake their A levels, regardless of age or previous knowledge.
