    I'm not too sure where to put this but it has been baffling me for a long long time and I've asked my useless tutors at College and I get told different answers... so I'm wondering if you guys know it...

    Right now I am doing my ASs and I feel as if I haven't put enough effort into them during this series of exams. With the UCAS forms needing to be completed early on my A2 year, would I:

    a) need to fill in my AS grades on the form
    b) would universities base their offers on my AS grades if I want to repeat them in January? (Most important question.)
    c) what happens if my grade improves when I recieve the results in March and my form has already been submitted?
    d) when do Universities conduct interviews?

    Thanks!

    you put predicted grades(your teachers will predict your A2 grades based on AS results) on UCAS form. so you can retake AS's in January.

    I would recommend you to fill in everything in the application form including your personal statement over the summer. When you get your AS results on august 18, go back home and fill the AS results on your application form.

    To answer your 4 questions:

    a) Yes, you will need to fill in your AS grades on the forms. In addition, enter your year of exam (i.e. june 2005) and the exam board you are following (i.e. AQA, OCR, Edexcel)

    b) Yes, some uni's will base your AS grades to make offers, however, they would also take your predicted grades, personal statement, and reference in consideration when deciding to make offers. Therefore, grades are not the only thing to make offers.

    c) If your AS grade improves after the resits, you could call them.

    d) When you get an offer, the uni will contact you about interviews in a few weeks time.

    If your AS results are bad, you can decline them, which means you won't need to put them on your UCAS form and you can resit. You won't need to contact the universities when your AS grades change because you won't have listed them in the first place. That means they'll use your predicted A-level grades, so you'll need to talk to your teachers and convince them you can do better with AS resits and hard work at A2. The majority of universities don't interview for the majority of their courses, but if they do, you'll be sent details with the offer.
