    I'm currently at college studying aqa Chem but I did edexcel at my old sixth form and they have entered me for the whole chemistry a level at both centres.
    Obviously I'm only going to attend one of them but the other centre I wont attend, will it affect my ucas?
    I'll they send it to my unis saying I got 0?

    So your old Sixth Form is entering you for the Edexcel Chem A-level and your current college is entering you for the full AQA Chem A-level?

    PQ & Carnationlilyrose - What impact would this have on the OP's university application? Supposing Chem is part of the entry requirements and they were entered for both centres, only did the exams at one centre and did well enough on those exams. Would it cause any problems? I can see the university may be perplexed when the results come in and they see for one set of exams it's unclassified or whatever? That said I don't know how they exactly view the results. I assume they look at the UCI and grades entered under that UCI.

    Why has your old 6th form entered you for anything if you have left? Are you really taking all 6 units of the A level with 2 different exams boards, or AS at one and full A level at the other?

    It is possible to withdraw candidates right up until July so it is not too late to change. Not to fix this is a waste of money and will cause all sorts of trouble - to the centre waiting for you to turn up when you don't and I have no idea what sort of trouble at Results' Day - no idea because I can't imagine why it would ever happen. It is beyond stupid.

    Talk to the centre where you don't want to take the exams, explain the issue and they will withdraw you when they understand the problem.

    I'm not sure what it would do beyond confuse the hell out of the admissions people, as I haven't had any experience of anything like this, but as always on matters of this kind, I would go with what Compost says, as they are really the expert on exam entries.
