    Hi again everybody

    As a resitter, I've put in my UCAS my achieved overall A2 grades and then put the ones I'm resitting again, as my overall grade "pending".
    However, my UCAS adviser at college isn't happy with this- she told me I must put all of my module grades down as well. I really don't want to do this as I'm sure Liverpool, Lancaster and Exeter don't care much about individual module grades and by putting my modular grades down I'll be kicking myself in the foot really, by showing just how much I did badly in August.
    I didn't put any modular grades in last year's application and still got two interviews and an offer (I applied to different unis though).

    Shall I just leave it as it is or should I put in the module grades?
    as far as I'm aware you are under no obligation to put module grades down, unless your uni requires them (I think Cambridge does - but even so I think they ask for them directly after application) so if it's not a requirement and you don't want to then don't aha :-)

    I've got seven 1s at standard grades and a 2 for standard grade english, five As at higher and three As at advanced higher. Oh and my UKCAT is 742.5. I know St. Andrews want excellent academics, so will my 2 in english be likely to affect my chances there?

    When are people planning on sending off their applications? I don't want to send it until just before the deadline as really, there's no point and early applicants are not given any beneficial advantage are they?

    The later you leave it, the more chance you have of missing the deadline - UCASs server is well known for falling down at critical moments, and if you need to send it to a referee first then that's another weak link out of your control.

    Whilst there may not be any genuine advantage to sending it early, it's not as if the unis are going to sit on it til after the 15th - my uni are already reviewing the first batch of applications they've received.

    Do we have to put any module resits on UCAS (saying this because some people said we don't have to even put down our modules)

    Oh that's cool, I guess it could help if mine could be reviewed before the deadline. My reference has been completed already so I might as well send it then. Thanks

    I'm waiting for my college to send off my application. UCAS says my reference was completed and approved on the 30th of September so I'm not sure what they're waiting for... it's been 4 days since I sent it off to my college and I sent an email to my old tutor to remind her.

    I was under the impression that we were responsible for sending off our applications and it wasn't sent to our previous schools first? If not, then I'll probably be sending it off around midnight..

    I just phoned my college up and asked and they were like "Sure, lots of people do it." They even sent me a document full of all the details about how to apply. Very helpful considering I'm not even a student anymore!
