    hi,

    say if I sit a module in january and I mess that up and decide to resit/retake (any difference in their meaning?) the module in the summer, will the unis know that I've resat that module?

    thanks

    They only see your final grade I believe, so no they wouldn't know if it was for A2. This may be slightly different for AS depending on what stage you are at in resitting when you submit your UCAS form.

    I think they can see the date you sat the paper - but you could've sat both papers first time round in the Summer. So as far as I know, no. But I'm not certain.

    As far as I'm aware, only Cambridge asks for the module (inc resit) grades. No other university can view them and certainly not merely through UCAS.

    They'll see when you sat the paper so I assume they'd put two and two togethor..but like somebody already said you could have sat them togethor.

    Still, unless you're applying for Cambridge I don't think it's an issue at all.

    I know that if you do Mathematics at Imperial, you must get an A in every module and resits are not accepted. So how would they determine that?

    They must have some method - they probably ask for results slips or something of the sort.

    so would the same rule apply if i messed up my jan module for AS and then resat that in june? the uni wouldn't know that its the second time im sitting it as a lot of the schools make their students take both papers in the summer?

    You would correctly report the better grade of the two sittings, so if you didn't improve on your grade in June you'd just report the January grade. If you did improve on the grade in June, that wouldn't be out of line with the timing of the other modules so a resit would not be obvious. However, this would not make any difference if it is an entry condition that no resits are allowed.
