    right,
    im applying through ucas having had 2 years out since sitting my a levels.
    I am resitting one module of my maths alevel to get an a, but am taking the exam in jan at a school different to the one where i sat my a levels the first time round.

    Now im filling in my ucas form and have realised itlooks as though i did 2 a levels to begin with and am now picking up a 3rd, 2 years later, at a different school.( i have the third a level- maths, as result pending) Is there a way to make it clear that this isnt the case, and that im only waiting for the results of 1 of the 6 modules???

    thank you

    Well, you could put the maths A Level and the grade you got originally under your old school, then have maths A Level again under the new school as pending. So you'd have maths A Level twice, if that makes sense?

    I think so, that's how you'd normally show you're resitting something - by putting the subject twice with one as pending and one as the old grade. That's what I did and I've got four offers so far anyway :dontknow:. You could still put the module grades in too, to make it clearer.

    Umm... I'd put it as pending on both I think.. alongside your other modules on both

    Try asking Minerva, she knows the right answers to these things. Shes the one who does all the sticky threads.
