    I'm applying for Med at Cambridge and had a question with regards to UMS AS declaration on the SAQ.

    Maths is the only modular subject I took, and I am aware that my low UMS (89% average) will be a disadvantage. The breakdown was 87% in C1, 100% in C2 and 81% in S1.

    My C1 and S1 results were a really big underperformance compared to how I did through the year. I was wondering if it would be advisable to state on my SAQ that I plan to retake these? I haven't decided whether I actually will yet.

    Thank you

    It won't really help your A2 grade, and won't be factored into an offer, so no there's not much point.
