    I don't know if I have posted this in the write place so sorry if not!
    I an currently in year 11 and i am wondering if universities can see how many retakes you do at GCSE as I have took quite a few just because I can (bad i know but this is what i have been told) but now I am wondering if this would put me at a disadvantage? Can they see?
    Thank you :-)

    Well most bcuz there are many idiots on this planet and all of them have made many retakes but the universities don't know.Bro i know what ur feeling i am also going through this problem.

    Take as many retakes as you need, it won't make a difference as universities almost certainly won't see or care if you've retaken.

    As long as you don't retake the GCSE in a different year, they wont see (im an alevel student)

    I literally just had to resit my basically every AS subject I did and Bristol still made me an offer based on my predicted grades of AAA rather than the existing grades of BBC ... so i wouldn't be too concerned about your GCSE's your final grades will prove your capability anyway.
