    Hi all

    I sat my A-levels in 2014. I dropped out of my original uni and decided to re-take a few A-levels. Because my attendance of my old sixth-form from '12-'14 and I won't be sitting my resits until summer 2016 the ucas application will not let me enter 2016 for the date of completion of my A-level (retake) unless I put my sixth-form attendance from 12-16 despite not actually being at the college any more. (note: I am actually sitting my re-takes at my old sixth-form but as a private candidate and not an enrolled student)

    Shall I just put the attendance from 12-16 even though this is not technically correct information?

    Just put in the month you will be sitting exams and make sure you have ticked the 'part time' box. You'll be putting it in twice.

    I've tried that :/ You have to put month and year of when the qualification was completed. The only way I can get 2016 to appear in the drop down menu is by changing my sixth-form attendance from 2012-2016 which isn't correct information.

    Shall I enter the my old sixth-form again, and enter the re-takes there?

    Yes, that's what I meant by putting it in twice.

    No, many universities will still consider you, but you will go to the bottom of the pile for consideration, below those applications which were on time. It very much depends on what you are applying for. If you don't get any offers, you are eligible fro Extra, which opens in February, and if that fails, you will have an account ready for Clearing.
