    Im so confused! So does UCAS automatically send off my application to the different school who then check them and predicts my grade, and then the schools send it off? ARGH

    yes Ive done my UKCAT, pretty terrible this time around compared to last year :/ 640. what about you?

    I phoned up the new school where I'll be resitting at and they said they don't predict my grades as they are just a centre for the exams...so it'll be my old school who predicts my grades. Which is annoying because I emailed my old school 2 days ago and they haven't even been bothered to reply back!

    Which unis are you applying to? Also have you done the UKCAT? If you have, what's the verdict?

    i am finding it difficult to explain in my personal statement why i am reapplying and resitting, like what would be the near perfect sentence or two to add in my personal to explain it.
    My situation:
    GCSEs: 10A*'s and 2A's
    AS level: 5A's first time round
    A2 level: 4a's and 1B in bio, phy, maths, general studies and chem respectively
    UKCAT last year 665, band 2

    I had two family deaths last year in year 13, and also was living independly for two months due to family issues, it affected me to the point where i stopped attending school, i struggled very much last year, also have a backed up doctors and school note, but dont know how to mention this in my personal statement. Shall i just send a letter from school with the doctors note attached to the different unis before i send my application to UCAS, or shall i condense my personal statement even more to explain my circumstances, i dont know why but i feel thats inappropriate its like wanting a sympathy vote. i am so confused, any help would be much appreciated thankyou very much
