How do you view applicants who have retaken some of their A level exams?

Re-sits are acceptable in principle, however, we would typically require higher grades if the overall time taken to do A levels exceeds the usual two years. Especially for Mathematics and Further Mathematics A levels, taking more than two years for these subjects will put your application at a disadvantage. We normally view applicants who take more than the usual two years to complete their Mathematics A levels to an acceptable standard as being unsuitable for our two most competitive degrees: GLN0 & LG13.
