    Ok, I'm planning on re-applying. I have my A-level results already, but I want to re-sit one of my maths paper to get an A* which UCL requires.

    Originally, on that particular paper I got a 'B' grade (79 ums) and my overall grade for that subject is an 'A' grade.

    I want to know:

    1) what do I put on my UCAS form? (pending? put the grade that I got?) Is this affected by the date of my resit? (so either in january or june)

    2) During their consideration of my application (so before my resit result has come back or before I've actually done the resit), would the university know what I orginally got? I mean, I don't want them thinking that I got a 'D' grade or something really low in my original sitting. After the resit result, if it is higher and gives me an A* overall, would they know that I originally got an A-grade?

    You list the qualification twice. Once with your original result and then again as pending to show your resitting.

    Have you emailed UCL to see if they will accept the resit? Because the reply that TSR's solidary thread got was that it was unlikely you'd be able to make a competitive application has its so competitive at UCL (unless of course you have extenuating circumstances)

    Come join us on the solidary reapplication thread though, for advice or a chat.

    also, does it have any effect on the competitiveness of my applying with regards to whether I do the resit in january or june?
