    Hi, I re-sat year 12 and moved college as I didn't do so well the first time round in my A-Levels but I'm in a better position now. At the moment I'm filling up my UCAS application form and want to apply for Chemistry and I'm predicted an AAC. On UCAS it tells me to confirm the institutions I've attended for study. However, if I include my previous college and results will it affect my chances in getting into my university?

    One of the conditions of UCAS is to include and clearly state all your qualifications, this includes your resits and fails.
    To answer your question about whether or not it affects your chances, no, I personally completely messed up my AS maths and GCSE's and had to do resits, but I got offers from all the uni's I applied to - I'm predicted AAB.

    A strong personal statement and reference also helps.

    Given that leaving them out will make it a fraudulent application, the answer is yes, it will make it possible for you to receive offers if you carry out Ucas's instructions to declare everything. Ucas is very clear on the subject.

    What happens if I got a better grade the second time round? Does this override the previous grade?

    Yes, it does, but you have to declare both.

    How do you show that you're doing re-sits?

    Put the achieved grade in, then put the exam in again as 'pending'. It's all in the first two posts here:http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3538633
