    So worried.

    My school is extremely strange, in that it predicted all of us this year one grade under what we actually got - so instead of A*, A, C - I was predicated - A, B, D.

    I haven't sent my application off, but despite literally my entire year group complaining - they won't change anyones.

    Most of my schools are BBB, but I doubt they'll accept me once they see the D instead of a C.
    so if someone got 3 solids A's, they'd get bbb?? then again, universities will see your actual grades too which are great, not just the predictions and that will put you in a good position to receive offers . A2's are harder and despite all the success stories I've seen on here, its quite common that people either stay the same or go down a grade and Im sure all uni's know this. If anything, it makes a change from them seeing over-inflated predictions made by sixth form/ colleges which makes uni's more suspicious.

    In other words, you don't need to worry!

    If I put down I'm resitting 3 A levels but all my offers only require an increased grade in one or two of the A levels, will I still have to resit at least one module in the 3rd A-level?

    You have to inform the universities of what you are intending to do, so if you say you are resitting all three but then change your mind, you have to inform them and be aware that they then have the right to withdraw your offer if they wish. Does that answer your question? I'm unsure if I understood you correctly.

    I think it does?

    Basically I'm resitting Further Mathematics (FM), Biology and Chemistry. A couple of my choices said that the Maths I started in year 11 (2012) might not be considered which is why I'm prepared to take some FM modules.

    If however, they don't stipulate what subjects the offers have to be from, and so Maths is included, then it was my thought that FM would be unnecessary. I don't like the thought of them potentially withdrawing my offer, though, so I probably will apply to resit at least one module in that situation!

    I'm afraid the mysteries of how maths and further maths are worked out is way beyond me, never having had to do it. The bottom line is, if you say you are resitting and the universities make you an offer on the basis of that, you are then in breach of your side of the contract if you don't do what you said. That makes it possible for them to withdraw the offers, on the basis that you aren't the same applicant they made it to. How often they do this, is, of course, an unknowable thing.

    As CLR says - if you've said you'll sit exams you have to sit them or you open up the opportunity for universities to amend or withdraw their offers.

    If you get offers that only cover 2 of your subjects then sit the exams for the 3rd subject but focus your efforts on the others. Even turning up, writing your name and "I am a fish" 99 times will be fine.

    That'd be me for maths.

    I am retaking AS modules in Chemistry and Maths, and I am still doing History. In History I am not retaking any AS modules. I have also dropped Physics. Is this how I should leave it?

    I wrote on my qualification date as 08/15 for the AS instead of 06/15 . Will it make big difference?

    Hiya,
    Not sure if this has been asked recently but I'm just entering my qualifications into the UCAS apply site and I'm not sure what to put for my AS subjects for which I am resitting modules. Do I just put my results as they came in June then add the subject again with 'pending' for the units I'm resitting and the overall grade?
    any help would be appreciated

    Yes exactly as you said. For example if you did Psychology this year and got an A and a C and retaking the C you put both grades in as 2015 and then you re-enter AS Psychology so you have two and put the A and leave the C blank, put it as 2016 and pending

    So just re-enter as pending as you said and change the year

    Yes, you can just add the AS again for August 2016 and leave the result as pending. It's not compulsory (unless the unis state otherwise) to declare module results and indeed which modules you're planning on resitting. If you do wish to do this, just add in your module results leaving the modules you plan to resit as pending on the August 2016 AS, and put all your results in for the August 2015 one.

    Just a word of caution - if you are going to declare the module results, it's wise to do this for every subject otherwise the admissions tutors may be a little sceptical.

    I did AS Maths at my secondary school (2 years ago) and got a U grade. I am taking maths at college and currently a second year student. I got a grade A at AS level when I did it last year. Do I have to enter the U grade as an AS level under my secondary school and also enter the A grade at my college on UCAS?
    I did not receive any as level certificates amongst my gcse ones, does this mean they haven't been "cashed in" , hence do not need to enter them?
    Best to check with the exams officer at the secondary school as to whether it was cashed in.

    Hi, I have three strong A level grades, however I dropped psychology at AS as my result wasn't so strong (C). I'm worried this grade will hinder my application. Do I need to include it on my UCAS form?
