    I have just finished my A2 exams, and I am going to take a gap uear and apply the following academic year. I did not do very well in AS as i didn't work to my full potential, however this year I have applied myself a lot more.

    In the case that I do get the grades, I need a personal statement ready to apply straight away. However I am not too sure how to write it, especially as i am applying after my secpnd year not my first.

    Do I mention the AS grades, or wait until August and just list my A2 grades without mention of AS?

    Many thanks

    Your application includes your grades for AS and A levels in the education section.

    You shouldn't list them (or even talk about them except to discuss specific topics you enjoyed) in your PS.
