    Supposedly yes, http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1744719.
    Shame isn't it? I can imagine being asked why I got a few U's in my first year in the STEM A levels.

    Yes, tell them, but don't assume it's a bad thing.

    You can always ring the admissions office on an anonymous basis and check with them.
    But U to A is really good.

    Well done by the way:clap2:.

    Unfortunately yes because I was in a similair situation as you last year & it was so annoying!
    Bloody well done on pulling it up to an A though!
    People are right as well, when I went to the university of York I asked if they considered third years/resitters/re applicants and they said you'll be treat the same and sometimes view it as a positive because you were motivated enough to try again and pull your grade up

    Pretty sure you do have to declare it, but considering you got an A it shouldn't hinder your application.

    Just out of curiosity, what subject is it?

    Paragraph A. As informed a perspective as you are going to get.

    Yes, I've read this, but I wasn't sure if that refers to exams that have been resat.
    Why would it not? It replaces the grade you had if you resit, but it doesn't make the original event not happen, much as you would like it to.

    I contacted UCAS and I can confirm that I do NOT have to declare Us for qualifications I resat.
    Did you? Well, that is news.

    What do you think, Minerva PQ ?

    That was once true a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It isn't true now. and that isn't quite the question the OP is asking.

    Yes you do - UCAS makes it very clear before sending off applications that everything, including Us, has to be declared. OP's situation is a little different, but otherwise people should always declare every grade they get, from Us to A*s.

    As usual, there is a disconnect between what UCAS says in its guidance and the declaration you are required to make when you submit your application, and the advice you get from their helpdesk people.

    Declare it, is my advice, but it is up to you.

    If UCAS said that, then there is something weird happening. The universities can check what grades you got, including resits, so will know if you do not declare it. Then your application is fraudulent so you can and probably will be kicked out of uni. Don't risk it.

    If you can get it in an email from UCAS what they've said about it, then I would say you were in the clear. Otherwise, why risk it?

    unfortunately yes otherwise why would UCAS even give you the option to declare a U grade in the first place?

    I know this is very off topic, but to go from a U to an A is astounding. So massive congrats on that
