    Ok, so basically if I do well in my January exams next year I'll have 4 A levels completed before the Easter Holidays. As I will know my grade by that time as well (although it could change due to UMS etc), will universities? Would it already be put as confirmed/declined entry?

    It depends if your results have been 'cashed in' or not - that is, your school/college has told the exam board that you have completed the required amount of units for that course and you will be signed off/certificated and your grade is official. If not, your result will still officially be pending.

    I don't think I've explained that very well, but hopefully you'll understand.

    For example, I sat an AS level a year early in 2008, but my school didn't cash it in until 2009 so I'd have the same official date for all my AS levels - if that makes sense?

    January exam results aren't sent direct to UCAS in the way that June ones are, so you would have to inform them yourself. Track updates to unconditional when the university tells UCAS their conditions have been met, so they could update it upon receiving confirmation of your results, but they have a lot of other priorities and often don't bother until results day in August.
