Iam going to do my Igcses (cambridge board) this may. but i did my maths a year earlier where i got a B i was supposed to get an A. i then resat it and got an A. do universities even care about igcses and if so will they care about my resit even though i did it one year earlier??

Some universities (which tend to be very competitive), will look at your GCSE's and take them into consideration (albeit not as much as A-levels as you quite correctly said).
Take Medicine at Birmingham or Oxbridge as an example.
They'll likely look at the final grades, but I doubt they'd look at whether you resat in the first place, let alone mark you down on it.
Medicine is a very competitive course, and sometimes even if you have amazing grades and a killer personal statement, you dont even get called for an interview. But anyway, point well made.
I wouldnt worry too much about your IGCSE marks, and rather focus on the task at hand; A-levels.
