    So a friend of mine took a bunch a resits for his CIE A level, A2 results were just released and he's deciding whether or not to retake again.
    I was wondering if you change boards from CIE to AQA and take the whole A level again, would it still be counted as retaking an exam or since its a new board-new results?

    You would need to declare both exam boards on any applications I think, and you don't have to write 'resit'/'retake' on your application, it just goes in your reference etc, so it could be explained on that

    If you're not sure, check with your exams officer

    Can you explain what you mean by " it goes into your reference?" Thank you for your reply!

    Well when you fill out your UCAS form, you just put your subject and grade really - you don't fill in any other details. Your teachers will send off a reference, where if there's a complicated situation like that then they will explain it in there it's always best to ask the exams officer though, as that's just going off what I can gather about UCAS from my application
