    When I was doing my application, I used an old planner from my GCSE time as it was the first thing I found. My teachers had all told us to write down the dates of the exams in our planners when they found out and told us, but I never really used that as shortly afterwards we got a proper timetable.

    Fast forward to now, I've received offers from all of the universities I applied to as of this morning and have just by chance stumbled across my GCSE certificates. Looking at them, I'm worried I may have put more down as June than were actually taken in June. I remember the majority being put as June on the application, but I'm worried now there may have been a few in either May or July which I put down as June. I'm hunting for my planner now to find out if any of the dates in it were in fact wrong, but I'm freaking out. Will universities care about this, would they withdraw the offer because of this? If it turns out a few are wrong, should I contact UCAS and try to get it fixed, or leave it? I don't want my offers taken away because I may have sat English in May and not June!

    Nobody is going to care about this, nor are they going to look into it. Universities do not have time to check every single student and make sure that they did in fact sit an exam in June that they said they say in June. They will not reprimand you for a minor mistake and university staff are intelligent enough to know that May through July is an exam period. They will not withdraw your offers just because you sat an exam in a slightly different month than you thought. It's also of absolutely no interest to them, I can't think of a single reason why they'd care that you sat an exam in May, or June, or July.

    As you say this is a minor error and not worth the panic.

    I put all my GCSE exams as having been taken in June and my BTEC Travel and Tourism exam as having been taken in July, because that's the month that showed up alongside my exam results on the exams page of my school's VLE; I don't even remember the proportion of exams I took in May compared to June, and even if I took my BTEC exam in July or not (I think it was June!). I don't think it matters at all.
