    • Hi

      I screwed up my A Levels big time. I want to retake it...but I dont want to wait until November again? Apparently can take British A Levels here, but slightly different syllabus? The exams start in June. Has anyone took the British A Levels before? They also have a different syllabus e.g. I didnt learn Group IV, Nitrogen compounds, sulphur for Chemistry, how do I learn them as I think reading from textbooks is not enough. There is also an introduction of an A* grade. Can anyine please advise me? Thank you...

      Well, I suggest u apply to redo ur A level in school(ur same jc) 

      If u have taken ur A level in June or Nov, you still need to wait till next year for the March Uni application exercise. 

      If u take A level in June, u need to study a different syllabus, which put u at a disadvantage.

      But actually, even if you have score badlly in ur A level, there are diploma course (for A level entry) for example such as radiography, physiotherapy... and they are professional course, which deliver good salary and career prospect.

      fyi, those diploma courses also require decent grades to enrol.
