    So now that the AS level were no longer include in A-level total score , I first think it was still useful as another classification apart from predicted grade but then my teacher advise some of us not to take the AS exams as if we perform slightly worse it will lower the reliability of our predicted grades is that true ? So , do universities care about more about predicted grades and will they be able to see our AS grades then? Got a little confused about the reform, thanks for your attention

    If you take an AS exam then you will have to declare the qualification and the grade received on your UCAS application.

    If you don't take an AS exam then your reference is expected to explain your mock exam results in Yr 12 that have been used to calculate your predicted grades.

    So If I have a nice predicted grade based on my mock, Is going for the AS exams a risk for me as I may do worse than the mock exams and universities will be able to see that ?
