    Didn't do too well in GCSE science so I am resitting them this year. (Had a lot of serious issues )
    Well not exactly but Im an IGCSE in double award science.
    My other GCSEs from the previous year were actully good and I'm also doing some new GCSEs this year (ones I haven't sat for before) so the the university it would look like I did some in 2016 and 2017 which some people do. I've heard of people doing some in year 9. For courses like dentistry will they double check?

    You will have to enter your qualifications into UCAS when you apply to university. When you do this, you will need to provide the year in which the qualifications were awarded. And, of course, you must be honest. You need to provide both the initial result and the resit result.

    Most universities condone a small number of resits, particularly at the GCSE level. The main goal really is to get the best grade you can at GCSE. It doesn't matter if you do some GCSEs in Year 9, some in Year 10, some in Year 11 or assort them across the years in whatever fashion you like.

    Try not to focus too much on your university application this year. Have aspirational goals in mind, but don't get bogged down by the logistics of it - you will be doing plenty of that when you come to A Level!

    I know! I feel sick thinking about those two years of pressure, the thing is a previously did triple science but this time round I'm doing a double award.
    How would I show that on my UCAS form?? It's not really the exact same qualification..

    Under the qualifications section, there is a long list of qualifications you can enter.

    You would select the triple award, enter the year and the grade. Then you would select the double award, enter the year and the grade. That's all.

    Your teachers will tell you all about it. Honestly, don't fret - just focus on smashing your GCSEs!!

    Yes but the people looking at it are human, not Academic-perfectionist nut-jobs. I feel its geat you're resitting Science GCSEs it shows a redeeming quality and you're not willing to just give up. The only time they'll take that into consideration will probably be if you're applying for a competitive course.
