    Hi,

    Does it have module grades on? Does it have your overall UMS marks?

    And does it have what you got for AS in that subject? or just the overall grade?

    After A2 exams you get the certificate which shows your overall grade [AS + A2]. Individual AS grades are NOT documented on your final A Level certificate. You actually get an AS certificate...

    AS certificates show your AS grades in a given subject.

    Certificates do NOT show UMS marks. So 300/300 and 240/300 will both appear to be the same on a certificate.

    Ah right! So is there any point in keeping the AS certificates then? lol

    Why would you need an AS certificate for a subject you took to A2 level?

    Why not keep your AS certificate? That's not really a big hassle to keep lol.

    Unless, you aren't pleased with your AS results.

    Probably just an A2 certificate. You get grades based on what 'qualifications' you fulfill. You get AS certificates at the end of the AS year because your units can be combined in such a way to give you an AS grade in a given subject.

    I'm guessing that since you have a full A Level combination for your subjects you will be eligible for a single A Level certificate.

    on alevel certifcate, you get the full A2 result if ur giving it all together...
    otherwise, you get an AS level certificate first , then A2 certificate later. A2 certificate contains final (full course) marks...

    it looks similar to the o level (gcse) format

    It depends on your school policy. Never getting an AS certificate if you were doing the full A level, or getting both AS and A level on one certificate used, to be normal. Now funding rules now mean that state schools have to cash-in ASs in Year 12 so you are likely to get AS certificates for everything after Year 12 and then A level certificates after Year 13 (maybe plus new AS grades if you re-sat AS units.)

    The certificates never show the marks, only the grades.

    I think that is right, your A-level certificate will show both.

    I'd like to think that, as the posting was several months ago, this was sorted out a while ago :P
