    If it's certified, then yes. Ask your schools exams officer whether your school certifies AS qualifications and, if the answer is yes, then you have to declare them, even the subject you're dropping.

    Yes, usually you do include the AS you have dropped. If you are retaking one unit for a subject, change the qualification date for next year and for overall grade, put pending.. (Just enter your individual unit grade for the subject)
    I'd still make sure you check with the school and go over it with them just to be on the safe side.

    Not necessarily! It depends whether your school 'cashes' in AS grades or not, if your school has the option of not cashing in AS grades then you do not need to mention your AS modules/grades in your ucas application and at the bottom of your reference the school would write 'We do not cash in AS grades' or something along those lines.

    However if your school does cash in AS grades (that means basically paying to get the certificates etc) then you would have to declare your as level grades on your ucas application!

    If I were you, ask your school/college what they do?

    I hope this helps!

    To add to this for OP, all state schools cash in AS grades. It's only a small selection of private schools who do not cash in AS.
