    Basically your tutor / subject teachers will send off your predicted grades to the uni's, not the actual grades. You've only really got to persuade your teacher you caan get the grade your aiming for in maths, so you get the prediction you want. Only Cambridge and Oxford (the bofs call it oxbridge :cool:) will be able to see your actual grade.

    If you're not taking Maths on to A2, then you don't put anything. You haven't achieved a grade in Maths, so have no qualification in it. If you are taking it on to A2, then it would simply go down as 'Pending' and your teacher would supply a predicted grade.

    And actually, its only Cambridge that know your actual grade. Oxford are as oblivious as the rest.

    You must get humiliated extremely easily, and the 2008 Oxford application form does not contain any section to separately enter qualifications. They simply use the UCAS form along with every other university apart from Cambridge which has a separate form asking for UMS scores in each module. Which means that Oxford are just as oblivious about uncertificated qualifications as the rest.

    2008 Application form is here:

    so basically lets say i got a B in AS MATHS.Im not planning on taking it to A2
    However im not happy with having a B in As so im declining it.I retake it in january.The admission asks me for 3 full A Levels and 1 extra As.That extra AS is the one that im declining.If i do that,can i put
    AS Maths-Pending?
    You are saying "You haven't achieved a grade in Maths, so have no qualification in it."But that doesnt sound right to me.If what you are saying is right,then univ will believe that you are only doing 3 A Levels without an extra AS (If you choose to decline ur AS).

    The bit you quoted at the end was specifically referring to the OP who got a U in their Maths AS, which doesn't count as a grade and therefore isn't a valid qualification (ie with a certificate). In your situation you would put the AS down as 'PENDING - January 2008'.

    ^ word. 'U' means ungraded and therefore it will not be certified.
