I couldn’t sit my private maths gcse retake this year and contacted my university about it. They said it should be fine and I don’t have to worry. Is there any chance they would go back on their word? I am really stressed

I am curious whether the results will be given digitally or do they have to be collected in person.

Hi there,
They have to be collected in person, or sent through post. You can also ask a friend to receive them for you if you sign a declaration saying that they're allowed to.
Hoped this helped

I would think universities would be more understanding considering the position students have been put in. If I you are going to uni i'd call the unis you have chosen as your firm and insurance ask if they would be lenient if you missed a grade.

Yeah i believe that too, but i believe this false for degree's in high demand such as medicine as there is always someone better

Yes definitely if your are aiming for competitive course or uni then it will be harder. However also in that respect there may be some lower ranked unis that may also offer a course like Medicine and may take you in. Theres also the fact that if say your only in year 13 and you didnt meet the grades then whats the harm of adding another year by doing the Autumn exams.

It depends on the school, mine sends them out digitally every year and you only go in if you want to be in the celebration photo mid-morning. Others do usually do it in person, but I imagine most will send them digitally this year

Whoever's afraid only of that, is in a very comfortable situation.

Grades aren't of much help if you can't afford to pay for a room and food while studying.
I'm currently selling anything I can to get money for deposits.

Even in low ranked unis , there are still people waiting on the reserve list that will get the grades Or have the grades (Like me😓😓).
