    If you sit a module early but don't complete a full AS then you don't have a qualification to declare. If you are awared a full AS then you have to include it in UCAS.

    The unis will never ever know unless you tell them. It's one of the many flaws in the British education system which is why Michael Gove will go down as the worst education ministers ever in the history of the UK.

    But UCAS has strict rules of complete disclosure and the consequences for failing to comply with it are severe. Don't lost the opportunity of gaining a place at uni because you did not reveal your resist modules. It's a gamble not worth taking.

    THIS

    If a module counted towards a qualification (and AS) then you must declare the qualification on your application (and it will be checked against exam board records).

    If a module was never part of a certified AS level in Yr11 then only the AS grade from Yr12 would be listed in your UCAS application (although if your AS grade includes module results from the first attempt in Yr11 then that will be visible to universities).

    If your school/college has a policy of putting applicants forward for AS modules in Yr11 then that's something that should be explained in the reference - it then shouldn't count against you.
