    Hi

    I was supposed to be sitting a GCE business as an external student, I had paid to study and paid for a tutor to guide me through the course, however 2 days before the exam I had some un-expected news that led to me not sitting either of my exams.

    I have UCAS points already under my belt and UEL have offered me an unconditional place in September! I just was wondering if they can withdraw the offer? I'm hoping they would take into consideration whats happened but I'm unsure. Please help!

    Will you still get a grade or certificate for business? You'll only know if you speak to them yourselves.

    Thank you for your reply. I am unsure I will. I did not right down a grade in my UCAS application so I am wondering if they have accepted me off my previous points? Everything seems to be going against me at the minute, so I hope they understand.

    Have you contacted the exam board? did you include that you were sitting business on your ucas?

    I think its 99.9% it will make no difference under the circumstances. As said above check and that will give you peace of mind.

    I have contacted UEL and someone on the phone said to me it's fine. I think I'm just worrying to much, I just want to make 100% sure that I still have my place at the university, it's something that I'm actually looking forward to.

    If they told you that its fine then it appears you have nothing to worry about
