    Ok so just got a couple of questions about grades on UCAS application and couldn't find them anywhere else, and getting mixed feedback off teachers.

    1. Can you not put your grades down if they have not been cashed in, for example last year I achieved an A* in a level mathematics, would I not be able to put it on my UCAS app (therefore leaving it pending) because it has not been cashed in yet? (This would mean technically all my grades are pending not allowing me to put any grades down on UCAS apart from module grades)

    2. Do you have to split your A levels and AS levels up, regardless if you are continuing them on to A2?

    3. For further maths we are being entered for an extra module (7 modules in total). How would I express this on my UCAS application? Do I have to put it in A2?

    4. Is it recommended to put your module grades on your UCAS app regardless of what they were (taking in to account the answer for my first point)?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Are you absolutely sure it hasn't been cashed in? It is incredibly uncommon these days for colleges to not cash in an AS level, whether or not it is being continued to A2. Edit: If you are sure, then sorry, I can't answer your question.

    2. Yes. You add the AS level with grade, then the A level with pending. If you're adding modules, you add the A level with the first two/three modules filled in (these are your AS modules) and the last two/three modules pending.

    3. My college is doing the same. Your A level will consist of 6 modules, even if you take 7 exams, and your lowest grade will be discounted. You don't need to write this on your application, though it might sound good in a statement or reference that you're doing more maths than necessary (depending on what course you're applying for).

    4. If you and another candidate are neck-and-neck for an offer, and only one of you will be sent it, the student who has put their module grades will be offered the place (provided you're absolutely identical in every other aspect).

    Hope this helps
