Resitting IGCSE Math, but not sure if result will be received in time for application

Hi,

I am currently a Year 12 student doing A levels, I wanted to re sit my IGCSE math's as I didn't achieve a 4 and wanted to improve my grade, however as I have missed the deadline for the May - June exams.

I have now decided to retake it during the October and November series, as I know that I will receive my results mid to late January, how would I go about providing results that I currently do not have and if this will affect my application.

If possible I would also like to know how this would work for University's outside of UK/UCAS

If you apply before you get your results, the maths IGCSE will have a predicted grade (like your A levels) if you have a referee to put a predicted grade on there.
As above, its just another 'pending' qualification - you would not need to have the result before you applied -and any offer would include this GCSE as an extra condition. You could even be taking the GCSE in June and the situation would be the same. PS. Just remember that you must also list your original GCSE grade even though you are also resitting it.

Thank you for the response! If you don’t mind me asking what happens if you don’t have a predicted grade for it? Also if the ‘pending’ qualification part is true for university outside of the UK. Once again thank you for the response
Why would your school not be able to give you a predicted grade?
Even if you are retaking this privately, most schools could still 'estimate' your likely grade and would include it alongside the predicted grades for your A levels.

I have no idea about what any Uni outside the UK would want/expect - the advice you have been given is only relevant to a UCAS application.
