    I'm a Scottish student so did national 5 in 4th year, I got a D in biology and sat it the following year and received a B, my teacher said I wouldn't need to put the D grade down so I just put the B but now i'm worried that I've left it out? Will the universities see that as a wrong thing??

    No, generally if you take a resit you just put your best grade down, from what I know of the Scottish system your 'old grade' can be completely forgotten of - so you don't need to worry

    Retaking an exam does not mean you can forget about the previous attempt at it

    This was a genuine error so just let them know
