I'm sure questions like this one have been asked a million times, but I really just want to make sure the answer applies to my situation as well.

This year I've taken all the AS and A2 exams for English Literature and Politics.

On results day, if I want to retake modules, can I decline both my AS and A2 (or just my A2 if my AS grades are okay) grade and put my grades as pending?

If so, I'll be taking all the resits in January 2009. Would I put that date on my UCAS form, or would I still put June 2008?

Will the declining process happen on results day or another time?

I ask because it's likely I'll have gotten a B in English because of one or two exams, but I'm applying to universities next year where I'll need an A. Thanks!

Now listen here Juno! I really liked the film, don't get me wrong- it was ace. But ever since you became the bearer of bad news, well I feel as though our relationship has began to crumble, why don't we just call it a day?

I thought if you got a U, it was automatically declined?

Because I said so, and what I say goes

The exam boards changed the rules this year. Now, if you want to resit an AS unit you don't decline the AS grade. So it's better for some people, but worse for others.

So this way you can resit AS exams in your second year, but you can't resit A2 exams the following year?

no, because some courses say you can have a U, don't they

I rather like your little parrot thing.

Sooo, I have to put my AS grade on my UCAS app, even if I'm taking resits?

I don't know about your schools, but ours keeps all the grades as pending till we have done all the resits we want to do, including a2 then sends them off.

If your AS grades are cashed in (and they probably will be), then you need to put them on your UCAS form. However, you can ask your teacher to mention you're doing resits in your reference.
