    So I'm a current Y13 student and applying to uni through UCAS but I've got a problem on the education section.
    I took 11 GCSEs last year at this school but this year I retook 4 of them and sat an extra one at another centre that isn't my school as an external private candidate.
    Three of my retaken subjects didn't go up a grade but one did and the extra one I got an A*.
    Do I declare all retaken and extra as sat at the centre or only the one that's changed grades.
    Also when adding a centre it asked me to say when I started and finished but obviously because I went just for the exam I can't really say anything.
    How should I do this?

    You declare all of your qualifications - that means all resits of GCSEs even if the grade didn't change.

    If you sat an exam externally then you need to add the exam centre as a PART TIME place of study for the months of the exam/results - you can then attach the qualifications you sat with them to that place of study and it will be clear you were just sitting exams and not receiving tuition.
