    Hi there

    If I can find a cheaper exam center to do my exams, I know that I would have to let UCAS know.

    Could doing this potentially make me lose my offers? I'm tempted not to take the risk but this place might be half the price - saving me a couple hundred.

    I honestly can't see any reason why, but the rule is if in doubt, call up Ucas. I genuinely can't see any reason for that to happen, but get it from the horse's mouth. Exams are exams, wherever you sit them, in my opinion.

    I called UCAS. She agreed that it shouldn't be an issue but said that it has nothing to do with them. I simply have to let the Universities know. I'll wait till my application is succesful.

    Basically it's my old college. The exams officer when I asked about resits didn't think I'd get any conditional offers with my subpar A level grades. I've resat once and in her experience, Universities recognise that people aren't going to improve a second time. But since I do have offers, she reckons I might be able to resit and it saves me a bunch so thought I'd try!

    Well, good luck with them. I can't see a problem there, but you've done the sensible thing in checking.
