    So I'm not entirely sure what to do here.

    I got ABB at A2 (English Lit, Chem, and Bio), and for 4 out of my 5 choices, this is enough for unconditionals, however, for my fifth choice, they require AAB.

    I'm resitting one Biology unit in January which will push it up to an A, but I'm wondering exactly how I'd put this down on the education section. Would I put my overall grade as a B, but stick the individual unit grade under pending, or would I stick the overall grade as pending along with the unit grade?

    Or, should I just stick the unit grade and the overall grade in as usual, and just make a note in my personal statement that I'm resitting a unit?

    You declare the subject you are re-sitting twice, once with the current grade and once as pending. You have to declare the grade of anything that is certificated.

    yep from the comment above you split your A level into a level and AS then depending on which exam your sitting if its an A level or AS exam you add another qualification put the exam(s) in and put it as pending.

    Okay, so this is what I've done... I've entered the grade twice, once as the 2008 A2 at grade B, and again as a 2009 pending qualification (Circled with the arrow) Hopefully this is correct?

    Sorry for bothering you all, but if my Sixth Form had any degree of competence, they would have told me this in the first place, rather than just telling me to 'mention it in my personal statement' :rolleyes:

    Correct on both counts, but the information is on the UCAS website for candidates to read.

    Even modules or is that optional?

    I declared the grades and modules for all my AS subjects, but for general studies where I have only sat 2/3 modules (am sitting the third next june) I just put each of the module names in and pending for all of them.
