    Hello

    I would like to know if on the UCAS application, do I need to enter my AS results for the subjects that don't count towards A2? (e.g. Bio, chem and physics)

    I have entered my Mathematics AS results as they do count to A2 but am unsure about the science ones as they are all the new syllabus and do not count towards A2.

    Help is much appreciated
    Thanks

    If you sat an official exam for them (i.e. not an internal college test) then yes, you do.

    For the sciences i sat an internal exam i.e. it does not count to A2, so to confirm this, it means that I don't have to put this onto the UCAS application form?

    I don't understand what you're saying.

    I sat AS exams for all four of my subjects: Maths, Chemistry, Physics, and Computer Science. Only Maths counts towards the A2, however they were all official exams so I put all of them on my UCAS application form. Whereas some of my friends at other colleges sat internal exams (i.e. they're not sent off to an exam board to get marked and don't give you an actual qualification) and thus can't put it down on their UCAS application form.
