    I'm sitting 4 AS Levels this summer, 3 of which are at my school and on the AQA board. the other one I took at a college evening class and thats on OCR. I got my info through from the college today about the exams and i have a completely different candidate number and UCI number to the exams I've been entered for at my school.

    Do you know if thats going to cause me any problems you know with cashing grades in. And if so what do I do :confused:

    Thanks guys

    It shouldn't make a difference, I do two subjects at college and three at school and I'm not aware of there being any potential problems.

    You'll get separate certficates for the two UCI numbers. Make sure the A2 ones match accordingly to the AS ones, otherwise you won't be able to forward your AS marks onto A2.

    Out of interest, what happens if you do an AS at one centre then your A2 somewhere else? I know this can be done, so there must be some way of getting around it.

    Well as long as you get entered with the same UCI number for both centres then it'll be fine. Your AS marks will be forwarded to your A2. The UCI number can be like a bank for example, as long as you use the same number you can access your UMS marks. If you use different UCI numbers for the same subject, then you're in trouble.

    Make sure you give your AS UCI Number when entering for your A2. This will allow your UMS marks from AS Level to be used to cash-in at A2

    But your UCI number contains your centre number and candidate number, so surely if you're at a different centre, you'll have a different UCI?

    Not exactly. For private/external candidates I'm 100% certain you can use the same UCI. What is your position? If they're giving using another UCI number, then ask them to use your original one, therefore making you a private candidate.

    Your UCI number is produced when you first register for a GCE exam. For most of you this will be your AS levels, but for some internationals (like me) this will be for your O'Levels.

    Your UCI number contains your first centre number and candidate number. It also has the year you first registered for a GCE exam.

    This should not change even if you change your centre. So when you're registering for other exams you must always use this number so that your units can be cashed-in properly. (You will however have different UCI numbers for different exam boards)

    Hope this helps
