We're waiting for Ian to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Corpus Christi College, Cambridge,

I am writing to you to enquire about your policy regarding AS Level modular examination resits (for the June following the initial attempt), concerning your medicine (A100) course. It is my understanding that on the SAQ form candidates are required to complete, any resit intentions must be declared. I would like to know if, for this course:
a) Are those who indicate that they intend to resit one single module looked upon less favourably by the admissions staff involved in the decision to offer a candidate a place onto the course, both generally and in the case of near-misses?
b) Would it be advantageous for candidates to resit one AS module where there has been a near miss (in terms of both grade and UMS score), but their overall grade remains unaffected and meets the entry requirements of your institution for this course, or would it be preferable/advantageous to not resit at all?

I would like to thank you in advanced for considering my request, and I look forward to hearing your response soon

Yours faithfully,

Ian Hoffman
