    Does anyone know about the proposed A Level resit changes? Does it mean that if you havent cashed in your grades you could resit them next year? Im taking some exams at the end of Jan 04, but wuld like to take some AS units again....anyone know about this change to the resit rule of being able to take a module more than one time?

    i think that what has happened is...
    After January 2004 you can retake AS units as many time as you like, that means your skool can give you the option to sit the max amount of exams per year, that way you will end up getting better marks, kos you are under pressure, and have experienced the "the real" exam before sitting them in June, (if you did not do so good).

    You see I have done my A Levels, but not cashed in the grades for my chemistry and maths as I was effectively going to take modules 5&6 again. I have already taken the AS units twice, but again not cashed them. So does this mean that I could take the AS (and if necessary A2) units for a third time?

    Yes. Scummy rule but it's there.

    Right - so I could take my AS modules again? If so, that would be really good - as I had to move schools the first time and change exam boards!

    It was John Clare of the Telegraph that said that from 2004 you could resit exams as many times as you like...I was just wondering if that included those people who have taken them twice before Jan 2004, but not cashed them?
