    Oh I see, so the grades arent official yet because we can choose to accept or decline. So if i choose to re sit a history module, and get a higher grade, will the unis know that I did a re sit?
    yes, people have till the 20th of september to 'cash in' or decline.

    no there is no way the uni's can find out you have done a resit. (unless you apply for oxbridge where they beat it out of you )

    Oh okay. I have another question. I read on this thread that the Unis mostly go by the predicted grades, and if this is the case I am doomed because I am predicted BBCC, but on my AS's I got AACC. So when I apply to uni, they will think I'm only capable of BBCC right? However I'm certain I can acheive A's at A-level.

    you were predicted BBCC but now your college knows you are capable of higher they will change your predicted grades. also with a bit of persuading you will be able to change your predictions to maybe AAAB

    Go and talk to your teachers! If you made a revision timetable, take that to show them how much you worked. Promise to hand in all your homework on time and go and see them if you have any questions. Then get down on your knees and beg!

    If you got comfortable A's, it is quite likely they will reconsider if they think that you will work harder this year. If you only just scraped an A it will be harder, but you might still be able to convince them.

    normally (at my school at least - then again my school is always strange) u have a predicted grade BEFORE u take ur AS exams, and then when school starts again (ie: now) depending on ur AS results, ur predicted grades may change. Normally the teacher should change ur predicted grades considering ur got two As instead of two Bs.

    Also, just some advice for those of you applying on the 15th October (even tho u may not be applying to Oxbridge. At my school, even tho some dont, we have to send off our applications on the 15th), dont wait until the dealine which is the 20th September for remarks. If you want one, get it done NOW, not in a week, not in 2 weeks, but really now. because the max time it takes is 40 days, and in 40 days it may be too late to get a better grade.
