    Hi there.

    I have previously completed a level maths and recieved a B grade. I have decided to resit few exams to boost my grade to an A. I have also decided to book these exams privately at a centre. However, they asked me would i require a cash in? Could some please explain what this means and whether i should or shouldn't cash in ?. Thanks .

    From what I can remember, once you've cashed it in, you've got your grade, so I would say don't cash it in. I also did Maths early and was advised to avoid cashing it in until the end of year 13 so unis would accept it as part of my offer. Some unis want all your 3 A level grades to be obtained in one sitting (some don't care). However, my school had already cashed mine in so I had to rely on another 3 A levels to fulfill my offer. This is my only knowledge of cashing in, but it used to be that you could re-sit and cash in when happy. Not sure if it is the same now because my A Level Maths was 6 years ago.

    As you already have a cashed in grade for maths it makes sense to request cash in with your resits. If you don't request cash in then they will not calculate a new overall grade if your unit results have improved. You can request it after results but it can take a few days.
    The only reason for a private candidate not to do it is if you fear you will not improve, if you don't cash in then technically you don't have a new A level result and you can pretend the resits never happened.

    You can "re-cash" your results at a small fee for each module re-cashed at any time - so if you've done resits you can re-cash and they will actually change your grade if applicable. Also this will allow them to "move" units between Maths and Further Maths to maximize your grade(s) in those (if you're taking both - if you're only doing Maths this last bit is irrelevant to you).
