    I sent my application off, just like my school booklet told me to (my teacher sent it back after I made a mistake entering resits), but the booklet didn't say anything about resits, so I didn't declare any because it was the last day of college and I didn't want to take any risks entering resits, so my UCAS has been sent off today without any resits declared.

    Would phoning UCAS help? And how does letting unis know about resits work? Because I have a D, which I'm resitting.

    Has it actually been processed or sent to your referee? If it is the latter, I would contact your referee asap. If it is the first one, there is little you can do as UCAS can't change the form once it has been sent to them (which is silly but the way it is).

    Aww, forget it then. I hear you have to enter it twice, I didn't do that in this case because I already got it sent back and I didn't want to take any risks, college is finished and I can't contact my tutor, oh well hope for the best.....

    I phoned UCAS, they were super helpful. She told me to e-mail them my resits as soon as my application is processed tommorrow, and they will add my details to my application, and I'm not the first who has had this problem today.

    So anyone who has this, just phone UCAS.

    You enter your AS module (GCE advanced subsidary 2001 bla bla bla....) once with the real result, then another one with the result as pending. That is the correct way if you are resitting AS modules.

    I am glad it has worked out for you! When I tried to change something on my UCAS last year they said they couldn't change the form, so maybe it has changed!

    Do you have to put GCE Advanced Level after that, as well? Ie three entries for each subject ie AS result, AS pending, and gce advanced level pending, all for each subject ???

    thanks

    Nope, just enter the AS level twice.... Because the GCE Advanced Levels should already be on pending, because that is what you're taking at A2. You're retaking the AS level, not the A2....

    So for example,

    One subject would be something like this:

    GCE A-level Mathematics pending 08/2011
    AS Mathematics Pending 08/2011
    AS Mathematics Grade C 08/2010


    Am i correct??

    What do you put for the module grades of the AS repeat-do you put all modules as pending or put the ones your repeating as pending?

    Thanks again, sorry for the long post

    Correct.

    Put the modules you're retaking as pending if you're entering them.... entering modules isn't necessary though, in any case.
