    So I’ve managed to complete my As levels with all A’s and now I’m doing A2 with predicted grades all A*,
    I would like to apply to Imperial to do theoretical physics although I’m worried about one thing; in my IGCSE year I did an As maths exam and got a C so technically the As maths exam that I did in my As year is a resit (I got 100% UMS)
    Should I worry that I have a resit on my application? Will this limit my chances of getting into the uni I would like to get into, and do I even need to mention that I did this As exam in my IGCSE year or can I just leave it out?
    Btw the subjects I’m doing are Maths, Further maths, Physics, Geography and Chemistry.

    You definitely do need to declare it on your application or it can be declared fraudulent and offers/places can be withdrawn. I don't think unis are really going to worry about a C in an exam taken early, especially when you're clearly up to standard now, although I can't speak specifically for Imperial. They will be able to see from the date you've input it as that it was taken in the same year as your other IGCSEs so they will be aware it was taken early.
