    Hello. I'm an international student applying through UCAS, and thus, I need to provide my IELTS mark in the online application. The thing is, however, I haven't sat for this exam yet. I asked the universities I chose through email and they told me I could provide the mark up to a month before classes start, or around that, so I shouldn't have any problem. Nevertheless, do I need to point out this in my application? (I've already included IELTS as a future exam under the "Education" section in my application). Thanks in advance.

    Hi.
    You don't need to point this out in your application. Just leave the space for the grade blank and the universities will know it is pending. There is a space on the form for you to include your IELTS registration number if you already have one. If you haven't don't worry; you can leave that space blank too.
    Good luck with your application.

    Hi, I'm in the same situation and I need an advice. Should I alert the universities I chose before the deadline or should I use this information you gave me also for my situation?

    Thanks in advance

    As long as you include the exam on your UCAS form as"pending", the uniw will know you're planning to take it. So no, you don't need to tell them separately.

    You need to let them know your result before August 31st, but ideally you should tell them as soon as you get it.

    Hey, quick question for you: What school did you put in when you declared IELTS as a future exam? The place where you will be taking the test? Or the British Council? I want to include IELTS as a future exam too but I am unsure which school/college/centre to put it under.
