Retaking your A-Levels is often referred to as ‘resits’, this is when a student who took their A-Levels originally either didn’t get the results they wanted or didn’t achieve the grades they needed to get their university place.
Resits can sometimes feel and seem like a daunting prospect to students. And this is totally understandable, you have spent the last 2 years studying and building up to getting your results, only to have to face the prospect of doing resits. But with online learning it doesn’t need to be as bad as you think.
As doing resits is just a case of attempting your examinations again, you won’t have nearly as much information to have to take on board and learn fresh. You just need to adjust your learning style and technique to ensure you cover the aspects you struggled with when in the exams.
Online studying of A-Levels is perfect for people looking to resit their A-Levels, it’s flexible, fast and you can decide as and when you want to take your exams again. If you feel confident and ready to resit your exams in the following examination period, then as a distance learning student, you can do just that! All you have to do is find your exam centre and register as a private candidate.
Often with resits, if your A-Level course had any form of practicals or coursework, you won’t even have to redo that part. You can use the same work you had previously and focus entirely on the written examinations. Of course, if it was the practical element or coursework element of the exams that let you down, then redoing them in your resits is going to be vital.
