    Hi,
    I am currently applying to Reading, Queen Mary and Kent with the predicted grades BBB. I have offers from all 3.
    However, I resat my english AS coursework and moved it from a D to an A by getting 100% in the module.
    I also think I have done really bad on my recent sociology exam, and shall probably be retaking that in June, although I got a B in AS.
    I am looking to get AAB , but if i do that, I'm going to pull out of UCAS altogether and reapply next year.
    If I do get the aformentioned AAB, I plan to apply to: Sussex, Kings College, Warwick, St. Andrews and Exeter.
    The down side is that I am not aware as to whether they can see if you have done resits or not, and if they can I might not be in with a chance of getting an offer, and might be wasting my time.
    Can they see if you have done resits after you have the full A-level or not?
    I will have done the resits within the allocated 2 years of AS and A2.
    Thanks, Myles.

    PS: If you didn't understand any of it, I will gladly explain in further detail.

    They will only know that you did resits if the date of your qualifications is different, but if you are only doing resits within the two years then no they will not know. You are just maximising the use of the system. There are *some* universities/courses that require you to get your grades in one sitting without resits (e.g. Imperial) but I doubt that it will be a problem for the courses/universities you are applying for.

    If you do the resits whilst in sixth form as you plan they'll have no way of knowing, just got an offer from Exeter for example with more resits than I can count, so guessing one or two (or ten) resits won't make any difference at all
    As F1 fanatic stated some unis do ask for grades to be gotten in one sitting, but this will usually be stated on UCAS when you apply.

    Also there's now the opportunity to 'adjust' on results day, which means if you did exceed your offer you might be able to apply directly to one of those places (maybe visit now if you think that's an option for you):
