    I'm an external student student, on a gap year. I just resat some legacy a2 exams, and they went pretty well. However, the uni I really want to go to wants 2 A's however, the exams didn't got That well, i dont think.

    I was under the impression that, all legacy A levels were being discontinued after January, so I booked all my retakes for January. However, I just found out OCR are not discontinuing!!

    So I can get an A in the a2 modules. However, I never wrote these exams as June (pending) so universities do not know im retaking and ive got offers. If a uni has offered me A A, and I get AA by august, due to unmentioned resits, would this pose a problem?

    Who do I contact? UCAS? Each uni indiviually? Help!?

    As far as I know OCR exams will be discontinued, apart from maths (MEI definitely, possibly non-MEI as well) and some final modules that will be available until Summer this year.

    I've spoken to OCR and they are definitely offering the course I want to do in June 2010. I want to retake 2 modules, but haven't mentioned this is my UCAS because I thought Jan would be my last opportunity.

    So if I do retake it, will it matter at all? Would UCAS/Uni's want to know.

    If so, what do I do, how do I edit my application. Do I tell UCAS or each individual uni. Thanks!

    As long as you meet the conditions of your offer by 31st August then that should be fine. The universities already know you are resitting modules so unless they stipulate in their offer that you must not resit them then you should be fine. They do not receive results from January exams anyway.
