I did my certificate in finance in year 12 and got a D as learning was disrupted with lockdowns, which is obviously not good but I am doing the diploma for finance this year and am preparing much better, so lets say I get an A/B, how does that go with unis? do they only focus on diploma, or both?
My other a levels are English lang and geography, which I am more confident in, however if the uni I apply for needs an AAB, and I get AA and a B in diploma, will the D in year 12 drag that down?
This has been stressing me out for a while and I need to do my UCAS application asap

The certificate contributes half the marks towards the diploma. When you have the diploma the certificate is irrelevant but your D grade in the first half will make it much harder to get a good grade overall unless you re-sit.

oh I see. thanks for letting me know
I don't think I can resit the certificate exams, since the were a mess anyway and we did teacher assessment. However my school are making everyone do the resit for diploma exams anyway so hopefully I can maximise my grade for this to make up for the D as much as possible.

I'd ask about the possibility of resitting - you can always decide not to but it might be worth doing one of the papers.

I think I will ask now, however I don't think my school would do it. If I'm able to though, I'm assuming the resit would be way after I've submitted my application (which is next week). so how would they know?
ive only just realised how out of touch I am with things regarding my UCAS

If you make the push to re-sit your teachers might take that as evidence of commitment and up your predicted grade. With a D grade in the certificate I think* it is statistically impossible for you to get better than a B in the diploma.

*It's a while since I've looked at grade boundaries for it.
