    Hi everyone I'm re-sitting my AS history exams- which constitutes of two papers- in January, because I got a B the first time and decided to try and aim for a higher grade!
    I also re-sat my maths GCSE (for the third time ) in November, after getting no higher than a D each time I've sat the exam- I really suck at maths...

    I stupidly sent off my UCAS on Sunday without stating that I'm re-sitting these subjects. The reason I didn't put my history re-sit in was because my referee/tutor was so unclear as to how I entered a re-sit on my UCAS application, and as he checks UCAS only once a week, I knew it would be another week until he even looked at my UCAS, let alone did my reference or anything- and I was getting more and more stressed that the process was taking ages, with most of my friends already getting offers whilst my application was still waiting to referenced and sent off. I've already got a B for history and, in all fairness, it's unlikely I'll get anything higher. History is probably my weakest subject.

    I don't have an excuse for not putting maths down- I simply forgot. I was so obsessed with the AS re-sit, I completely forget about the GCSE re-sit! I'm fairly sure my tutor has mentioned the fact I'm re-sitting in my reference, because I specifically asked him to, but as we can't see references I'm not 100% certain.

    What does this mean? I haven't lied about any grades, etc. but I'm still a bit worried I'll get into trouble with UCAS if I haven't listed my re-sits. Please help- it's been on my mind for a couple of days and I need some advice

    You won't get into trouble, but the fact that you're resitting could mean that some universities will be more likely to offer you a place if they see that you're wanting a higher grade. Contact UCAS and your universities if you really want to inform them.

    Nope, not once you've sent it off. Otherwise, people would just be able to edit their qualifications and edit their application whenever they want. People could modify their grades and PS for their own gain, which is against the rules

    You need to contact UCAS and the universities to let them know of the changes to your application.

    Your maths could severely impact your application if any of your choices say they need a C or above, which as far as they're concerned you do not have and are not planning on doing anything about so this would result in a rejection. With the history, they need to know about it as they need to know about all of the exams you have taken/plan on taking. The results all get automatically collated by UCAS using your exam number then sent to the universities meaning if they do not know that you've taken an exam they will not collect your results for it. This could cause you a lot of unnecessary problems on results day as you'd then need to chase up the exam boards to confirm your results from March as your offer wouldn't be confirmed until they had all of your results.
