    I added my school and qualifications (IB). I put in all my subjects. In 'grade' do I put in my predicted grade, or do I put in 'pending'? I'm taking the exam next year.

    Only actual achieved grades go in. If you have not taken the exams yet, you put pending. Predicted grades are for referees to add in the reference, not for applicants, for obvious reasons.

    Of I am retaking a module do i have to show this on UCAS, if so how do I do it?

    Also because I resat the year at AS and took different A levels do I have to declare my first AS results? My form tutor told me not to

    You enter the qualification again, as is explained in the OP. And, yes, you do have to enter the AS grades from your first AS year.

    At my school if we resit a module of AS, the whole grade becomes pending. Does this mean the uni won't find out what we got overall at AS (even if its an entry requirement)? Also, with predicted grades, if its far from the AS result but the AS is pending, does that matter?
    Just a few q's to make sure I'm filling the application out right because I don't think I am
    Unless in the very rare case where schools don't certificate AS results, you should complete the qualification twice, once as achieved with the overall grade awarded, and again as a pending qualification. What your school may do for its own administrative purposes is their business, but if your results sheet shows an overall grade for any or all of those AS subjects, you need to enter them accordingly.

    No doubt this questions already been asked, but I couldn't see an answer anywhere. In 2014 I re-sat a GCSE English language exam (40% of qualification), and my overall grade went up from a C to an A. Do I have to declare both grades, even though I didn't re-sit the whole GCSE and there is no way of specifying how many exams I re-sat? Thanks
    Yes you do have to declare both sittings and grades.

    My school submitted my Ucas yesterday, and I had put all my module grades in. I plan to resit a biology paper to try to get my UMS to A * standard. I am also considering resitting a chem module. My school told me I didn't have to enter the modules as pending as I am not totally sure what I am resitting and that you only put pending if you are resitting the whole AS and it will change the grade. I have just read somnething which suggests you have to declare any as module resits. I didnt know, do I need to contact Ucas? I don't know which modules I am resitting yet!? This is for medicine. It won't change my grades as I have As overall in both already?
    If you don't know which exams you are going to resit there is nothing you need to do at this stage. When and if you do decide to resit exams, you will need to notify UCAS and your unis which ones. So if you have entered the module grades achieved that's fine - in any case a resit would be entered a second time with only the modules you plan to resit left as pending.

    Do I have to put GCSE retakes? I retook two exams in the Maths Linked Pair (Applications and Methods), one for each of Methods and Applications to get from an A to an A*.
    Yes.

    Right, im confused here. I resat Core 2 for AS Maths and got a better grade, how would i enter that?
    See above.

    Hi, sorry if this question has already been asked

    I'm applying for English at Oxford and declared my AS modular grades on my UCAS form - I got A's in all my AS' but my modular grades weren't amazing at all (For History I still managed an A overall despite getting a C in the second paper - there are only two papers). A lot of my peers who are also applying to Oxford had similar issues - they had As but not spectacular As. They opted to leave the modular grade section blank. My question is, having offered my average modular grades compared to those who have the same modular grades who haven't, who will the admissions tutor give favor too? Will someone who hasn't put them down have advantage over mine? Have I disadvantaged myself by allowing my modular grades to be judged?

    I have asked this question on this thread before and someone answered me that I should only enter the certified mark( contributing marks of the module) to the As qualification and therefore I only sumbitted the one in January

    Yes - as explained in the first post and in the UCAS blog guidance on entering grades.

    Hello,
    I have done enough maths modules for the whole qualification (C1-4, M1, S1) in year 12 but it has not been cashed in yet (on my results sheet it only had my cashed in AS scores and individual module marks) if I am resitting C3 and C4 as I got an A at first and want an A*, how do I enter this as currently I have entered it as 2 a levels but it then asks for two predicted grades. I thought I could enter them separately and have an A prediction for one and an A* for the other but my tutor said I can't do this. Do I need to officially state these results?
    Thanks

    You've got a certified AS so enter that as it was cashed in.

    You have a single pending A level. List it with the AS modules you aren't resitting and their actual grades and with pending results for the modules you're resitting.

    So I don't need to mention that I've done A2 maths? Do universities only receive cashed in results as I'm concerned this will count as hiding my grades

    if it isn't cashed in then it isn't certified or official so you must not include it. To do so would be claiming you have a qualification when you officially don't.

    I understand this but I am applying to a university that isn't too fond on resits so would they know I am resitting certain modules or to them would it look like I've only done the AS? Thanks for the quick responses also.

    They'll just see what you put. The modules you're not resitting with their grades and the other modules as pending.

    I don't know if my previous sixth-form cashed in my first year as results or not.
    My results sheet only has UMS marks, didn't even have the courtesy to put the overall grades. Would I contact exam boards to see if my results from as were cashed in?

    Contact the exams officer at your old sixth form. It sounds like they weren't cashed in on results day but they might have been done after if you left.
