    Hi,
    I have completed my AS in 3D product design, but i am continuing onto A2. In my ucas application, do i enter my AS result separately, or do I enter it under the name of A level with Advanced subsidiary. As this is has confused me completely, as my teacher hasn't made it clear on what i should do either????

    If you've got an AS then list the AS with the grade you got.
    If you're going to get an A level (A2 is NOT a qualification) then list the A levels with the dates you expect the results.

    So do I enter my AS results into ucas or not?

    ok, thank you, but how exactly do i make it clear that the product design a level i am doing is "A2" and not saying that i have taken an AS and another full A level?

    ok you've done an external exam for that subject at end of year 12? put the grade in Advance sub. also put that in the Advance level section, but the final grade should be ''pending'' in that section as you have not completed it yet. the AS grade can be entered under ''modules'' in the advance level section

    Because universities know that you'll get and AS and then an A level.

    If you add modules then you can add your AS modules to both the AS and the A level that they'll be counted against - that would make it crystal clear - but an AS in yr 12 and an A level in yr 13 is what universities expect to see (unless your exam centre doesn't offer AS in yr 12).

    I am currently doing Art, Psychology and Biology A Level. Last year (Year 12) I did maths AS, additionally.
    For ALL 4 of my AS subjects I put all of them as Advanced Subsidiary with their respective AS grades.
    Then for my 3 A2 Levels, I put 'Advanced Level' with grade 'pending'.
    However, you can only do this if your school has 'cashed in' your AS exams (consult your school). I have received 3 responses from universities so far (interviews/portfolio meetings), so this is definitely a right way of doing it!
