    I am also confused. Can you start again...

    What are your AS subjects and grades? Either in public exams or end of year mocks.

    And what are your A-level subjects and predictions?

    And which course are you considering at UCL?

    AS Subjects:
    Media Studies (Completed, I did AS and A2) - B
    Sociology (Continuing) - E
    Psychology (Continuing) - D
    English Lit and Lang (Continuing) - D
    Biology (Fast Tracking) - Pending
    Chemistry (Fast Tracking) - Pending

    A-level Subjects:
    Sociology
    Psychology
    English Lit and Lang
    Biology
    Chemistry

    Predicted Grades:
    Sociology - C
    Psychology - C
    English Lit and Lang - C
    Biology - A
    Chemistry - A

    (If I get B/As in my mocks before the UCAS application deadline, they will change the predicted grades for higher ones, but that is about it)

    Ok that's clearer. And what is the typical offer requirement for Chemistry at UCL? Including any required subjects. eg is maths required?

    Oh, and why are you trying to take so many subjects? You only need 3.

    See my edit about number of subjects.

    You need to focus on the 3 subjects you need for UCL.

    You are spreading yourself much too thinly and risk doing poorly in everything instead of well in the 3 you actually need. Especially if fast tracking means you are trying to do the entire biology and chemistry A-levels in one year.

    I've finished Year 13 and im applying to university after getting my final A Level Results.

    Lets say at AS i got ABBC, A in Maths, B in Physics, B in Chem, C in Further Maths.

    I drop Further Maths in my second year and i retake some Maths exams that aren't Core or Further Pure.
    My Final A2 grades are A*AA with an A in Maths. My AS Further Maths grade has now improved to a B as my modules got redistributed.

    So now my new AS Grades are AAAB, and A2 are A*AA. Every single of my new AS grades now have a higher mark even the A in Maths is now at a higher UMS.

    Now what do i declare? Do i have to put in two entries for each of my AS subjects? What do i put on the qualification date on the new AS results June 2016 for new June 2015 for old? If i wanted to input individual Module grades do i put in the old ones or the new ones for A2 results?

    Do i even have to input the old AS grades? I don't know if they've been cashed in and I don't want to call my college and ask cuz its awkward. Will i receive two certificates for each AS? Why don't my college just cash in the new AS grades?

    I don't want to unnecessarily put in worse AS grades and make myself look bad for no reason, and i don't want to not put them in and be accused of hiding results.

    You see the conundrum i'm in.....

    Yes you provide AS grades taken in linear subjects.

    It's up to your universities to decide if they are important or not.

    Hello, thanks for the answer i appreciate it but are you sure because this was on the ucas website:
    "c) If your school doesn’t certificate AS Levels at all:

    This would only apply for AS levels that are being taken onto A levels. In this case, you wouldn't state the AS level – you just need to state that you have a pending A level. The qualification date would be August 2016. "

    For example in linear the as topics will be tested again at the end of two years with the second year subjects and i then get an a level, so i thats why i want to know if i have to put the year 1 AS down even though they dont count for anything other than predictions but im taking a gap year.

    Perhaps Compost, Muttley79, or gdunne42 can clarify

    are linear AS level certified?
    Always - there is a single entry code for both exams and the cash-in so you can't separate them.

    (Original post by jacob1371)
    so do you get a certificate for them?
    Yes.

    If you have a completed, cashed-in qualification, e.g. an AS then you have to declare it to UCAS.

    Exactly what is meant by points on that sheet depends on what software your school uses for its exams processing so I can't really help. The grade is what matters. If you want to know what marks you scored and how close that was to the grades above and below then your school can tell you.

    Thankyou sir, i have one last question:
    If get bad AS grades (linear) like DDE but then go on to get great a level grades such as AAA* would the linear AS grades hurt my application for uni or do most unis care about the final alevel grades? ( I am applying during my gap year with my actual a level results not predictions)

    Thanks for the reply!

    And just because I'm being a bit slow... so if a student takes an AS exam but then carries the subject on to the full A-level they don't cash-in the AS and don't get a certifcate for it. And therefore the AS exam isn't declared on UCAS?

    Your most recent qualifications are the most important. So good A-levels outweigh poor AS-levels.
