    I wish to know weather being absent for a single subject in alevel will affect my grading for the rest of the subjects. I had registered for four Alevels while i only needed three thats why i decided to not sit for the extra paper. Please tell me that will it effect my overall certificate or not.

    If I were you, I would just sit the exam anyway. Even if you don't need it, you will get UMS points that are useful for University etc.

    "Update: it appears that the UCAS advisers answering the helpline are telling people that U grades must be entered regardless of whether you are re-sitting the subject or not."

    Assuming you're aiming for uni, you'll have to declare every grade you got including a U, so as Alisha said it would be much better to sit the exam anyway, but if the offer definitely excludes that fourth A level then not sitting the exam should have no effect

    Think you might be confusing UMS points with UCAS points? Can't see why getting minimal UMS in an additional a level would be useful for uni otherwise.

    OP: I was in this situation and decided to sit the exam anyway: I ended up getting an A. My advice is to do it anyway, do a little revision for it but still concentrate on the 3 you think you'll need for uni offer.

    Not turning up to the exam will have NO effect on other a levels though, answering your original question. You'll just get a 0.

    Ah thank you so much.I was so worried. My Uni doesn't consider the fourth grade at all so i have no need for it.
