last year I took A Level Maths (old spec), A Level Govt&Pol (old spec) and AS Level Further Maths (old spec) - achieved BCb respectively.

I'm planning to resit some modules - C2, C3 (Maths), Unit 1, Unit 3, Unit 4 (Politics) and FP1 (FM)

However, I spoke with the exams officer today and she said it's not possible for me to resit individual modules to improve my grades because I already got a certificate for them.

Is it not possible to 're-cash' all my modules and just get another certificate with the (hopefully) higher grade??

Any help is appreciated!

yes you can. This was a standard feature of the old modular A levels and certainly the maths unit exams are available this year. You might not be able to because a centre doesnt want to do it but not because examiners don't allow it.

Yes, you need to tell the centre the codes for the units you want to re-sit and also the codes for the qualifications you want to cash-in again. Since you're re-sitting AS and A level units I'd cash in the AS and A level Politics and you NEED to cash in AS Maths, A level Mash and AS FM so that all your units are freed up to move round to maximise your Maths grade. Which exam boards are the Gov&Pol and the Maths with?

If all the exams are with Edexcel then those are the correct cash-in codes. (Plus you also need the unit codes - 6664, 6665, 6667, etc.)

for politics shouldn't i just use one cash-in code (9GP01) since it's for the whole A Level (so i assume it would take into account Unit 1 of the AS)?

You don't have to bother with the AS code, but, if you do better in Unit 1 Gov & Pol it might improve your AS Grade ansd there's no harm in getting a certificate with a better grade on given that cashing-in is free.

It would be one certificate with both grades on it.
