    Can someone help me out, i am really confused, i just sat and got my results for my as levels.

    1. If you want to resit a certain module, do you have to decline your grade, or can you just resit that module in jan/june? Say S1, but not C1/C2. What if you want to resit the whole thing?

    2. If you prevent certification, does your grade not go on the UCAS form? And is this the same as 'declining it'

    Thank you very much.

    1. You can resit modules; if you don't decline the first grade and you're resit is worse, then you're first grade will count. But if you decline you're first grade then you will only have the resit grade, so don't decline unless it's a fail.
    If you want to resit the whole thing its basically the same- don't decline unless you have to. (The better modules will count)

    2. If you prevent certification then that is a decline. No certification means you don't have that A-level/module, therefore you cannot put it in your UCAS.

    I think they used to have a resit rule- of you resit 3 times, then you're first grade will not count. From my knowledge I believe that rule has now been abolished

    1) Not quite true. If you decline the overall AS grade then you still keep the individual module scores, but just don't get the AS. Then, if your resit score is lower you can keep the first one.
    If you decline the individual module score then you haven't got that at all and can only get the resit grade.

    You can resit modules whilst keeping your AS grade the same if it is good and you want to put it on your UCAS form. This means that the resit grade (or the original if that was higher) will go towards your A level grade only.

    :confused: so if you decline you can't put the grade down in the UCAS?
    Can you put module scores? I'm sure you can

    There isn't a space for module scores, so they'd have to go in your PS (which would look a bit weird and you should have better things to say) or your reference.

    But if you've declined your AS grade you don't have one to put in the results section, and you need to put it as "pending"

    If you've done 6 AS's and they aren't just modules then I'd say that looks OK.

    Having pending shouldn't disdvantage you, as I did when I applied as my school didn't cash in our AS grades. But if someone else from your school is applying to the same course at that uni it might be a bit obvious you're resitting.
