    I was very happy with my AS results, but would like to know what the condition are for taking retakes. I think with A2 being more challenging it may be worth it to resit some AS modules to improve your chances of getting a good overall grade. My questions are:

    1) If you want to retake a module do you have to decline your initial result? And will this affect your UCAS application predicted/actual grades?

    2) If you get lower in your retakes than your initial result, which one will count?

    3) Will Unis frown upon it?
