Hi everyone,
I am resetting an A level exam. With resits if you receive a lower grade. Does that make your past grade no longer be accepted by universities and how does it affect UCAS?
Do universities usually take the highest grade or most recent ?

They will take the highest grade so don't worry about that

So is it a standard thing with resits that the highest grade is taken into account ?

Are you sure about this. What if you reset and got worse grades than your original and you don’t want the worse grades to be shown. Is it possible to write off the worse resit grades?

The worse grades will still have to be seen by the uni (so you can't write them off exactly) but unis will use the better grades in deciding whether you meet their entry requirements or not.
