    Last summer I finished my A2 exams and already have a grade, but this year I retook a module to improve the grade. Do I need to do anything to make sure the resit counts?

    As long as the subject is cashed in again it should be fine. (This is possible up to 20 September and is still free for AQA and OCR. here is a charge for other boards - it's around £4 for Edexcel.

    Embarrassing question because I should already know this, but what exactly does 'cashed in' mean when referring to grades?

    It's just an administrative thing. For all modular subjects (so all A levels) you don't get a final overall grade until (you've done all the units and) a code is sent to the exam board requesting it. It's done by the exams officer and generally goes unnoticed by the candidate. If you have re-sat a unit, the exam board won't recalculate a new grade until they get a new cash-in code asking them to do it. If it hasn't happened then you grade will remain unchanged.
