    Do I put the module again on the A Level section?
    It's an A2 module, Statistics 2, but I took it at AS. I plan to retake it for A2, along with Mechanics 2 & 3 and Further Pure 2.
    Do I therefore put it on the A Level section as well as the AS level section?

    You list your AS as completed with the modules that contributed to that grade.

    You list your A level as pending with any modules you aren’t resitting with achieved grades and any modules you’re sitting this year as pending.

    You put it as a pending grade.

    If the first attempt didn’t count towards an AS grade then you don’t list the first attempt anywhere.

    Alright, I've put the resit on the AS area of the education section, listing the date as the future and the grade as pending.

    Why? Are you recertifying your AS with the module resit. That would be unusual. Resits will normally only count towards your A level grade.

    should I be counting it towards my A2 then?
    I mean, I took it at AS
    I'm unsure

    Whether or not it will actually count towards my A2 grade is uncertain, due to the nature of how the grade is calculated (best 3 modules, if this doesn't cut it then it won't be counted, but if it does it will be).

    You need to list
    AS Maths 2017
    Modules that counted on your results slip towards your AS grade (so if stats2 was counted in that on your first sitting then you’d list it here)

    A level Maths 2018
    Modules from AS that you aren’t resitting with achieved grades
    Modules you’re sitting in 2018 as pending

    If you’re taking more modules in total than would make up an A level then you need to make a guess about which modules will be counted towards your A level grade. Extra modules that won’t be included in a certified AS or A level award cannot be listed in your education section - a single maths module isn’t a qualification. They’re only countable once certified against a qualification.

    So, because Stats 2 is just a single module and not a full qualification on its own, I shouldn't really include it at all?
    All in all, I'll still have the same amount of modules that'll count towards an A level, it's just that I'm resitting one of the ones I took at AS (despite the fact that it's an A2 module).

    I can’t answer that because I don’t have access to your results slips.

    Just list your completed AS and pending A levels with the modules that will count towards the grade as I explained in my previous post.

    I have a list of my qualifications, if that's what you need. And a picture of the form I got with my AS results.

    Follow the instructions in post 9.

    I am not going to fill out your application for you. The instructions are simple.

    Sorry that I seem to be misunderstanding what now looks to be quite simple (I just really don't want to screw up).

    I reread the posts and I'm not sure why I got confused (must've been tired or something). I think I understand.
    For AS, I list my AS modules with what I got. For the A level, I list the AS modules with what I got AND my pending A2 modules. For the AS module S2, I put the date as 2018 and the grade as pending, since I plan to resit (in the A2 section that is)
