    I received my AS results yesterday. I currently do both maths and further maths (Edexcel). However, at my school, we do the whole maths A-Level in the first year, and the whole further maths A-Level in the second - as opposed to both at the same time over 2 years. We did more modules than we needed for the first year, with the plan being to carry 2 of those onto the following year, if we wanted to.

    So this is the situation: I have cashed in a maths AS-Level, and a whole maths A-Level, which I will enter onto UCAS respectively. I do not have a further maths AS-Level or full A-Level, so am I still expected to enter the 2 remaining modules onto UCAS and say it's pending? I would have to enter 2/3 modules into a further maths AS-Level if this is the case. I feel as though I shouldn't have to enter these modules as I do not have a full qualification with them. I plan to retake both of these modules, so this is confusing. I understand that modules are compulsory to be entered for maths (if this is wrong, please inform me). These may not even be the modules that I use in the end, as there are different possibilities.

    Thanks for any clarification.

    For most universities you only have to declare overall cashed-in grades, regardless of the subject. Cambridge is an exception, I'm not sure about anywhere else.

    Thanks for the response. I just wondered as people say there is a special case with maths, and whether it applies in this case.

    If there is a special case in Maths then it's by no means universal.
