    After sending my UCAS of yesterday and the school approving today I realised that I forgot to put my Ungraded in for maths (OCR if that is at all relevant). Originally had it down as A level, removed when realising that it should be as an AS and completely forgot.

    I've contacted UCAS through phone and got told to email them (was given an email) and that they should be able to put it on for me. havent heard back from them (this was earlier today) but that is understandable as I imagine they're pretty busy at the moment.

    The bit where I'm a little confused is I belive she said that I won't have to inform the Uni's that it's been changed, as it's a U and therefore not needed for the place. However I was pretty nervous at this point and a little worried I misunderstood. Could anyone confirm if this is correct? I assume when they check the system to see if the grades match the fact that it will be on UCAS will mean I don't have to worry? Petrified that I'll get rejected as I didn't mention the U.

    Also, if for some reason it doesn't get sorted out and I didn't get an offer due to this, would I be told (always a pessimist)

    The staff on the phone at Ucas don't always sing from the corporate hymn sheet. Our admissions mole, PQ, always advises contacting the universities separately after you've emailed Ucas, and you can see that it exonerates you from any accusation of trying to hide a failed grade. It won't be a big deal, but if you always cover yourself, you won't be treated as if you did anything wrong.

    Thanks for the help. It may sound stupid but how would you go about emailing them (I know obviously find the email etc) however how the hell would you address that type of email? Is it worth waiting a few days as it was only sent today and they may have not received it yet?

    Wait until you get a response from the UCAS qualsupport email.

    Then just email admissions with your UCAS id and explain you initially left out a U grade accidentally but UCAS have confirmed that it has now been added onto your application.
