    Hi, I take 3 linear a levels at my college bio, history and psychology and just finished my AS year, i got EED but i know that the linear AS does not count towards the final a level and i will have to do the exams again at the end of two years. however i know my predicted grades are not going to be good so i have decided to take a gap year and apply with my results. I am determined to achieve high grades this time but i would like to know a few things. Do i have to put my AS grades on my ucas during my gap year even if they are linear and dont count? i would have received my full a levels at this time and will enter those but seeing as the AS levels do no contribute at all and i have to do all the exams again anyway at the end of 2 years , can i leave them out? Thanks
    You have to include the AS results.

    how so? could you please explain, i know that some people choose to leave their AS out since they have there full alevels that are better and considering its linear the AS does not have a certificate or anything.

    This still does not explain it, my grades are linear so they dont actually count as real AS grades the only thing that counts is the final a level and im applying during my gap year not after year 12

    All examinations which have had results must be declared. It's for the university to decide if they are relevant or not.
