    Hi,

    I did all of A-Level maths in year 12 and I'm applying for a course at LSE which requires A* maths, so I have to input my UMS marks. However, I didn't get an A*, I just missed out on it because I didn't manage to get over 90 UMS in C4 so I'm resitting it this year to get that 90 UMS.

    On the page where I input my UMS scores it says that I should leave blank the modules which I am yet to take, so I was wondering if I should leave my C4 one blank or put the module score in anyway because I'm going to retake it this academic year. If I did enter my UMS, then it would show that I have an A in normal maths and they won't know if I'm retaking it or not. I am also predicted an A* in maths and A in Further maths if that is relevant info.

    Thanks for help in advance!!!!!!!!

    I would definitely put it down as failure to do so could be interpreted as you trying to hide something from them. if the C4 ums is an outlier compared to your other scores I think it should be fine. May I ask which course this is for?

    It's for PPE and none of it has been certificated or will be until the end of this year so will that mean I could leave it blank? thanks for reply btw

    I have also completed A level maths in this way and at my school our UCAS advisor said that we should always declare module ums to universities if they ask for them. it's usually the a level which hasn't been certified so all the modules you sat are still official they just haven't been aggregated into a whole a level. If it worries you too much then you should email the admissions team letting them know you wish to resit C4.
