    Basically...after i re-took my AS Levels, all i got was an a4 piece of paper telling me what grades i got in the re-takes. I haven't got anything else to confirm that they have replaced my original grades, and i am stressing that when i get my A-Level results on the 18th the new grades won't have taken effect. Has anyone received a new results slip to confirm that their grades have been updated? Am i just being paranoid ?? :confused:

    Well if they were higher then they replace the original grades, if they're not they don't. No need to be worried.

    When I repeated my AS in January, the grade will stay the same because it depends on how well you do in your modular resits. If you do better and your grade is higher (e.g. from C to B), it might change. The resit module grade will be in bold meaning that it is the resit you have done.

    The extra ums points will automatically be added to your Alevel, don't worry! I had the same thought the other day

    i think if you retake twice, the original 1st grade doesn't count and your 2 retakes do, so if your original 1st grade was the best, it gets ruled out. Something like that.

    that used to be the case a few years ago. you can now retake as many times as you want before cashing in your A level, and the best grade counts.

    They changed that, and thank god they did - My school re-entered me twice for an exam i got an A in first time (did worse on retakes) :banghead: I didn't even know that they had entered me until i got into exam hall and found an extra paper on my desk. Their excuse was 'It's the UMS that counts, not the grade' :mad:

    I dunno - my school have a reputation of thinking they know whats best for us. The second time they re-entered me for it i went to see the exam officer the day before to make sure i hadn't been entered and she assured me that i hadn't yet when i got into the exam hall it was on my desk :wtf?:

    It's probably because they don't like me
