    hello,there.
    I was told that all of my AS results have been certificated already.
    But I plan to retake one of the subjects and drop another as well.
    It means I need to write down all my results on UCAS,right?
    Do I need to mention that I will ratke and drop?
    After re-take,if I get a better result,is it possible to change the grade which appeared in UCAS before?
    Thanks a lot!~

    You can still retake modules, your AS-level grade won't change but they'll still count towards the A-level.

    If you want to retake modules in a subject you're dropping, you need to decline the grade.

    Yes, you're supposed to put them on UCAS.

    You can't decline anymore. Just resit and cash in again to receive a new AS grade.

    all this cashing in, declining a grade, dropping subject and ressiting is confusing =[

    My college has never talked about certification/cashing in results. so I hope that means they haven't cashed them in because I'm resisting 5 modules and might drop an AS (not sure which one, I'll see how it goes further on in A2)

    Most schools/colleges DO cash in AS units. This means that you will receive a certificate with your overall AS grade on. Before this year, you had to decline a cashed in grade to be able to resit individual units again and then cash in again. Now you don't have to decline. You can just resit individual units again and then cash in again to receive a new AS grade. Regardless of whether you're resitting or dropping a subject it doesn't matter whether you've cashed in at AS or not anymore. All that it means is that you receive a certificate.

    does that mean that it wont affect my UCAS application? (i.e. I want to show Uni's that I am resitting some modules and the crap AS grades I got in august are not my final grades for AS)

    You can find out whether or not your school has cashed in by looking at your statement of results; as well as individual unit marks, is there a total UMS score for the subject and a grade? If yes, then your school has cashed in. For example:

    Not cashed in:

    Maths 1: 77/100 (B)
    Maths 2: 86/100 (A)
    Maths 3: 78/00 (B)

    Cashed in:

    Maths: 241/300 (A)

    Maths 1: 77/100 (B)
    Maths 2: 86/100 (A)
    Maths 3: 78/00 (B)

    Thank you very much, I'll look at my statements soon and see whether they have cashed them in.

    Thanks again - if I remember, I'll rep you tomrw
