Resit Applicant (A-levels done in 3 years) and UCAS watch


    (Original post by xSahar)
    I had to resit my first year because of an operation I had, it left me in pain and agony and out of college for 2-3 months and I wasn't even supposed to sit my exams, but I did anyway with the aid of painkillers. I wasn't prepared for the exams as school had been the last thing on my mind given my painful recovery, thus didn't perform well (UUEE). My second time I recieved BBB, though I was originally aiming for 3 A's, so will be retaken a few modules. It's worth mentioning that I was a year ahead before I retook a year, so now I'm with my own age group - will this help?

    Now I'm doing my A2's (3rd year of a-levels) and need to send of my UCAS application quickly, and I'm stuck with the Education section. I understand if I'm resitting an AS unit I need to create another AS for that subject and mark it as 'pending' but what do I do when I have retaken a whole year? Do I have to declare the first year? If I do, this is what it will look like:

    Biology AS E (2011)

    Biology AS B (2012)

    Biology AS (pending 2013)

    Does this look right? I'd appreciate any help as soon as possible!
    You just put in your recent grade so for you that would be 2012, you don't mention 2011 at all cos well, that's not relevant is it! Just out of curiosity what exam board do you do for Biology?
Do you think parents should charge rent?
