    Hello,

    I'm reapplying for uni through UCAS after my application last year was unsuccessful. My question is that last year I did retakes from the year before and didn't improve on them (got the same grade in 1 and got a worse grade in 1), do I include this in my application or is there no point?

    You don't have any choice. You have to declare everything. Ucas is very clear on the matter:

    I get that, it's just difficult to fill out the education section to make it clear what I've done and what I'm doing if that makes sense? For example, AS Maths I did 3 exams and first time round I got BAC, second time round I retook the B and the C and overall achieve CAC. So if I put that I got a C instead of a B in more recent retakes, would they mistake my B as a C?

    I think you can trust them to know their way around a Ucas form. Just do your bit and stop worrying.

    Cheers, just find the application online a bit confusing at times!
