    Well, the above really. I dropped out of one exam, but couldn't withdraw so I just sat there in the exam and did nothing and got a U.

    I got great As in the rest of my modules, but I'm afraid that the Unis saw the U and thought 'We don't want her!'

    Any thoughts??

    Well, some universities do look at individual grades but as you have recieved straight A's in the rest, it shouldn't be such a big issue at all! they will not say we don't want you at all so don't worry yourself! Are you doing the exam in June again?

    Thanks for answering.

    Oh I'm afraid I'm asking this after a rejection. Basically, I was applying for physics. Due to the weirdness of how my school does further maths, I was only going to do an AS-level an I would have to teach it to myself. In the interview I had, they said an A* in ordinary maths would have been fine. And because there were plenty of bad things going on in my personal life, I didn't finish D1. It was too late to withdraw from the exam officially. I was just wondering because I told my interviewer I was teaching it to myself, so a U isn't entirely unexpected. I suppose it doesn't matter now, they don't do adjustment.

    And because no other Uni I'm applying to wants or needs it, I decided not to do it.

    the university only sees your grades that go towards your entire a level/ as level cash-in so if D1 is not going towards any of your as levels / a levles then your universities wont see that grade.
    Have you said on your ucas form that you are sitting it? Just inform your universities that you are no longer using that module so when they get your results they wont see any mismatch to what modules you have actually taken to the ones you have put on your applicaiton form- you dont have to mention that you have sat the exam and have got a result for it
