If i retake an AS level subject, will it make any difference to my Results
or certificates?will there be any types of indication in my results or
certificates regarding the retake? Also if i carry forward that AS subject
and complete my A level, will my A level certificate or result have any
indication that i retook that particular AS subject?

Is this in the UK or the international version? i shall assume it is outside the UK as nearly All A levels are linear for the UK, but international A levels can still be AS+ A2.

Id you resit then you simply get a second qualification.
The dates you sat the examination are used.
UCAS requires you give a complete record of all exams attempted so they know by default because you declare that you have provided the information of all exams taken. If you hide information then you will be carrying out a fraud.

only if they ask for your results certificate future employers don't care and as long as you get a better grade it doesn't really matter

So you are doing CIE and the international version. You only have two 6 month windows to resit. You just get an additional certificate.

If you performed poorly in AS an hope to improve in A2 then remember to increase the overall grade you will need to exceed the target grade by the amount you fell short in AS, that could mean 1 or 2 grades higher and it becomes very challenging. A resit may be simpler. Unis are unlikely to care unless its medicine, in which case you may get away with the resit as long as its in the 2 year window from when you started the course.

Thanks a lot! Another thing is that what happens when i sit for the same exam in oct nov 18 and may june 19 without choosing retake option for the later one? Does it make my previous result invalid?
