    Could somebody tell me how one part of the 'A' level system works?

    I have taken all six papers for an 'A' level in one go. I am certain that I shall land an A grade.
    As this is my first sitting, what is the procedure? If I do get an 'A' do I have to tell them that I
    wish to stand with the results that I have picked up, i.e I do not wish to retake any of the papers,
    or do they assume that?

    It depends on the subject code under which you were entered. Candidates who are approaching the
    final A2 get entered under an aggregating code. See e.g. www.ocr.org.uk/develop/jcgqasa.pdf and ask
    your exam officer.

    Look on your statement of entry. If there is an item (usually with an entry code starting with 8 or
    9) that doesn't represent a specific paper, then chances are this is the certification code which
    will cause your modules to be cashed in and a grade issued. If you don't have that then you'll get 6
    module results and nothing more.

    However I believe you can apply for a late certification once you have the results, and i also
    believe this costs money.
