GCSE

If I'm re-sitting most of my GCSE because of difficult circumstances...
Will universities be able to see that I have re-sat my exams...?
Is this a big NO for them?
Do they still accept retakes for GCSE as long as you get good grades?

You need to list ALL GCSE results on UCAS the original 'bad ones' and the new 'good ones'. Most Universities accept resits so it shouldn't be a problem

As above - you must list all your GCSE grades - original grades and resits.
If you don't, its fraud - something ALL Unis will take very seriously.

Your UCAS reference should include a mention of anything that has impacted your studies so that Unis know why you retook them. If that reason is still an issue, its worth also completing a mitigating circumstances form for each Uni you apply to - example - Extenuating circumstances | Study at Bristol | University of Bristol
