    Hi,
    I've made a mistake on my UCAS about the date of one of my GCSES, as i took it early in november 2010, i wrote on my ucas it was november 2011 so it looks like a retake. I got an email from one of my unis asking about it.

    I have been told i should email my unis to tell them but i do not know whether i should or not, as i am waiting to hear from oxford (they tell us next week)
    and i am scared they will be annoyed or whatever

    What should i do?

    thanks in advance :'(

    In the 'your ucas welcome guide' it says ''you must write to us emmediately if there are changes to your exam subjects etc etc . . . or to any other exam details shown on your application. You must also tell the universities or colleges where you have applied to where you hold offers or any others that are still considering your application.'

    So just do this. You won't get into trouble or anything, telling them about the mistake will strengthen your application, as like you said it won't look like a resit as it currently does.

    contact UCAS and get it changed ASAP as it will make a difference to your application
    don't worry, mistakes do happen though! The worst though is mistakes in a PS, as they cant be changed (I dont think)

    Don't worry. They won't be annoyed. Contact UCAS and the individual universities ASAP and ask to have your UCAS form changed. :yep:
