Just finishing my UCAS application and was wondering when you put your qualifications in, it says the date you took them etc. Do you put the month you took the actual exam or do you put when you recieved the results?
Also, if you're retaking A-levels and it says grade, do you put 'pending' or if you've already got a result put that, and the school will note that you're retaking?
(Sorry about this - my school is being useless and won't get back to me about anything because I'm an ex-student!)
You put the month you took the exam. For example, I would put AS History: June 2010.
With the retaking part, you first put down the subject and grade achieved, then you put the subject again but this time with 'pending' as the grade, and the date you'll be sitting the retake exam. I.e. English Literature: June 2010: Grade C *add similar qualification* English Literature: January 2011: Grade Pending.

That other guy is wrong. Why on earth would you put the date you sat the exam?
I put August for all of my qualifications, and I've gotten 2 offers so no worries.
The date probably has little meaning for admissions anyway, so relax!
Yeah, I think you are right. The instruction on UCAS asks you to put the date on which you received your qualification. Certainly you don't receive a qualification immediately after the exam. I also put August for my June 2010 exams.
And yeah, the date hardly means anything (as long as it is not wrong by more than a few months).
