    Are you sure? My college was charging 30 pounds (or more for practical exams) per retake as well.
    yep definitely sure! check exam boards websites, they'll tell u the same thing.

    practical resits are free?! so if ur in AS and resat an AS practical during the year its free. you only have to pay £20 if during year 13 you chose to resit any year 12 practicals. no matter how many u resit its £20, per subject.

    Do you think it affected your chance of making your firm offer than it should have?

    Hold up! If you resat an AS exam but didn't tell UCAS, because you didn't believe you could get a better grade e.t.c or because you submitted your form before you got your result or made up your mind, do you have to tell them what grade you got?!?! Because I just thought it would be added to the A2 grade and given to UCAS/ my firm uni! :eek: I think I'm about to have a panic attack right now :eek:
    well according to pythianlegume you don't have to declare any module grades, so i assume you don't have to tell them about retakes either. I did, but that's cause my school made me. I declared 5resits, and got all my offers so don't worry

    The grade boundaries will be adjusted accordingly.

    You don't have to declare retakes you have done, but you ought to declare retakes that you intend to do in your second year.

    Ah, yes!
    Our accents are pretty non-compliant with the normal hearing of letters!

    Same as French though!
    You can do it!

    Haha, that just gives away that it's a dream , I've only had one so far about my unit 1 physics result - the sheet read 90 ums. Strangely, that was the only result I received and all the others must have disappeared :lolwut:
    It's strange how dreams are so unrealistic yet we fall for them every time :rolleyes:

    Everyone in AS: Has anyone started revising for A2 yet? Because I haven't and don't know whether I should feel bad not to.
    Nope not yet. After all our exams we had to go back for another month to start A2 but that's about it. It does sound like a good idea though - we've got tests waiting for us when we get back so I guess I have to start revising for the stuff that we did. Plus A2 Chemistry's harder than I thought so...
    I bet you anything 90% aren't going to remember half the stuff we did before the summer anyway - they might recap

    Haha, I'm practising lucid dreaming for this reason. Luckily I haven't had a results day themed dream nightmare yet but I bet it's all going to start this week

    You don't have to declare retakes you have done, but you ought to declare retakes that you intend to do in your second year.
    Surely you can just apply and then choose to retake later?

    Personally no, because I got a decent mark in Jan, and my AS mark gave me lots of leeway. But it affected my mental health that day more than it should have

    Well yes, in reality there is no way they would find out about retakes
