    Thank you

    Is it possible to make an application without showing my grades ?
    I don't think so. There will not be a good standard of measurement to compare you to other candidates.

    You need to show your grades. the key point is to show that you are progressing. if you get an A, retake and get an A*, that is progress and good. However, if you drop from an A to a B, then it is bad.

    My opinion is that you show good grades i.e. "A" or "A*" grades. Then you show other things that make you stand out from the crowd. Remember that you won't be the only kid with A or A* grades. So you need to tell them, here is why I am awesome, but not in an arrogant way.

    Good luck.

    That's new?

    Whenever they want really. And they shouldn't have needed your PS if you gave them your clearing number?
    I think it was due to the nature of the course and my quite unique circumstances because I needed to provide extra information to help them make their decision as to whether I could come down for an interview (it's a healthcare course) so she asked me to just put everything in an email so she could look at it all at once and make a decision

    17 UMS points does seem too difficult to get. The new remark criterias mean that examiners cannot give you extra marks from a difference in interpretation. The only way they can do so is if the original marker has made a significant error that doesn't conform with the mark scheme at all.
    Last year I got 61/98 points in my AS paper, this year (after resitting it) I got 92/96 marks Re-sit it!

    Since we would have to do it again, next year l have to ace everything: mocks, homework etc.

    Im dissapointed with my grades and l'm willing to change them next year as high as possible.

    I take 3 subjects all are the new spec so only did mocks this year. I got
    Psychology = C
    Economics = C
    English lit & lang = B

    The two C were really close to B's and I have been getting B's & A's in economics all year.
    I want to do economics at uni and need ABB. Will I even be predicted this?

    You will be fine. I understand that you will feel pressured because of all the excitement going on. When things settle, you should focus and plan yourself to achieve what you want.

    Good luck.

    Does one have to declare all their new specification AS grades on UCAS despite the fact that the AS exams will have to be retaken in year 13 along with the A2 exams?
