    This is the thing...
    Tomorrow I'm going to decline my AS grades to resit...

    I've already decided to resit Biology Unit 1 and 3...I got A but only 5 UMS grades away from a B.
    * For Biology Unit 3...Is there anyway I can sit 3B without having to resit W1(Alternative to coursework)?
    * What if I did worse in the W1 resit, but overall did better due to 3B? Will they take my overall better grade...or will they take the better W1 grade and better 3B grade?

    Now I was wondering whether to resit Chem...I got 254/300 and I was told A2 is hell...
    Unit 1- 60/90
    Unit 2- 77/90
    Unit 3- 117/120

    *Do I resit both 1 and 2? or just unit 1?....Should I even bother to resit Chem?

    *I have another question...on the UCAS form, do I put my grades for Biology and Chem as pending? Even though my lowest possible grade is an A?

    Thnx! :tsr:

    not sure about your unit 3, if I were you, I would resit everything. I did.... but that was pointless. Every UMS at AS helps, it makes your A-Level so much easier!

    if you haven't cashed in your AS's then you can't put your grades on the UCAS form, unfortunately, which is what happened to me. They only put predicted grades on the form instead.

    if cashing in means certification, then it does say that on your statement of results.
