    (Hypothetical scenario)

    Suppose you have certificated AS Maths and you took C1, C2 and S1 (and achieved an A grade.)

    Let's say you achieved 90/100 in S1 and you wanted to take the D1 exam (for the first time) in Year 13 to hopefully exceed your score of 90/100 in S1.

    In Year 13, In D1, you get 98/100.

    Your school would unlock all your maths modules and then enter in D1 to your AS Maths to maximise your AS score. S1 is then completely excluded from any part of your AS Maths or A2 Maths module combinations (supposing you take an A2 module, like S2, and make it a part of your A2 Maths combination - and exceed 90/100.)

    Therefore, all you achieve are qualifications in AS Maths and A2 maths.


    1) If you're about to take the D1 exam in Year 13, you will need to declare you're going to take that module. How would you enter this fact into your UCAS form? There is only space for 3 modules in AS Maths.

    2) Do you have to declare you got an A grade in S1 at all, given that it's just an 'extra' module floating around, i.e., it does not actually count towards your AS/A2 Maths at all?

    If you got 5 rejections this year, and applied to universities after a gap year, would you have to declare modules that didn't count towards your final qualifications?

    How would a gap year change what you have to declare and what you don't?
