    Say i got a D in Chem 1, i resat it last year and got a D and im resitting it again this year (gap year) do I need to enter the resit as well even though the grade is the same? And I retook chem2 and went from a U to an A, do i have to include the U as well? Thanks
    Every time you were awarded a certified AS or A level you need to list it in your application with the modules associated with that certified qualification.

    This is explained very clearly in the OP and in the UCAS blog linked to in the OP

    I hope you've got this saved so you only need to paste it in. I'm going on strike. If they can't or won't read the first post, I'm not answering.

    Hey, does anyone know if you're supposed to declare a 'No Result'? I'm re-doing my A Levels but sat them previously at school. For one of the subjects I didn't sit any of the exams, however, it seems they still entered me for them and cashed it in I guess (wish to god I knew about cashing in at the time so I could've told them not to!) so as opposed to a U grade (which I know you declare now) it says No Result. According to the exam board website, this means you don't have the qualification because you weren't examined on the necessary modules. So my question is if I should be entering this on my UCAS application. I understand declaring U grades now as it's so competitive they want to know everything, but I don't see how I can enter a qualification that I don't have any marks for at all.. the statement of results doesn't even say 0 UMS it just has 'X' and 'No Result' because I didn't sit the exams.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    I forgot to write that I am planning to resit some modules and I already sent my application. I honestly didn't know you have to write it down should I inform the UNI or should I just act dumb about it?

    You must tell the unis and UCAS of your resit plans once they are confirmed. If you don't, (a) you are not meeting the terms and conditions under which you submitted your application, and (b) you will have problems on Results Day because neither UCAS nor the unis will be able to reconcile the results they receive with your application.

    So what is the best thing I could do now since my application is already sent?
    To be honest I only planned to resit after I already sent my application.

    That's fine - lots of people decide after they've sent their application. As long as you make sure UCAS and all your unis have the resit information, it'll be fine and no-one will ask why you didn't tell them before.

    Thanks guys, made the section a lot more easier to complete. Just a bit of embarrassing that they'll see my 3 maths gcse resits with the same c grades...

    Hello,
    My school sent off my UCAS application yesterday and I was just looking through my application on track and it says that for GCSE maths I was awarded the qualification on exam board 'C+G'? When actually it was Edexcel?
    I have no idea how this happened? And i've been googling "C+G" and I don't think it even exists?
    I've emailed UCAS, but I don't know what to do, i'm worried that my application is going to have to be withdrawn?

    Thanks

    Of course it won't - this is a very minor problem. You need to check with your UCAS co-ordinator at School what's happened here, as they are supposed to check the details on your application before submitting it. If there is an error that needs correction, it's a very easy matter to do it by emailing the details to [email protected] and then to your uni choices. But check with your UCAS co-ordinator first.

    I'm a little shocked at how many people clearly haven't read the OP. It makes me wonder... if they can't read an important (and helpful, thanks TSR!) post about entering qualifications how are they supposed to deal with University reading lists?

    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.

    If that is the school policy ask them if they can explain that in the first line of the reference. If it's clear your prediction is a grade lower than your AS then universities may be still willing to make you an offer.

    HOWEVER if you're expecting to get A*AC and applying for BBB offer universities PLEASE make sure you have at least one good insurance choice that you like and would be happy to go to (and ideally that offers guaranteed accommodation to insurance students). Technically a university can reject you if you get A*A*C for a BBB offer and if that happens (unlikely in many cases but possible) you need to be sure you have a good fallback position.

    I am confused as to how you got A* at AS.
