    I want to apply for medicine. But unfortunately I started the 18 months program and was not ready for my 6 AS levels exams in June. I only had 5 months to prepare for those exams . The exams were:
    Chemistry- E
    biology----- D
    physics-----U
    math-------C
    further math -----not written
    french - A
    I decided to start an entirely new AS year where the exam board for AS Biology was changed from Edexcel to OCR and the AS Chemistry syllabus changed slightly.
    further more I am taking french AS and A2 and math AS andA2.
    I will also do further math in my A2 year. I have been getting A's and A*'s throughout the mock exams.
    I am sure to get A*AAA for the first AS year. Also my scholl will predict me A*AA for my second year.
    Questions
    1. will universities know that I am retaking?
    2. can I apply for medicine?
    3. Can my university see those previous AS grades?
    4. Should I include them in my application?

    1,3+4 You have to declare everything on your ucas application otherwise you are committing fraud essentially.
    2. I think most medical schools are very strict on resits but afraid this isn't my expertise so cant help much there.
