    If you have to send them the copies of your exam results then yes - it'll show up as a U on your grades. But if they don't ask to see copies, then no.

    They might get a bit pissed off if they see it on the cert though.

    Unclassified. I thought that you are required to display every single qualification you have taken, regardless of the outcome.

    I was under the impression that, since U is not a pass grade, it doesn't count as a qualification and isn't certificated; at least it didn't used to be. Whether that means you don't have to declare it I don't know, but I would have thought that, since you don't have it as a qualification, you don't have to declare it. The answer pretty much lies in whether or not it's on your GCSE certificates. If it is, then you'll probably have to declare it; if not, then you won't. If all else fails, phone UCAS (but maybe wait until September because they're busy enough as it is).

    It wouldn't be on a certificate. U means you weren't awarded the qualification. A certificate is only issued to somebody who has passed.

    Only A*-C grades actually "count" as a GCSE, but D-G are still qualifications, just not worth as much. Technically speaking, anything below C at GCSE is a fail.

    And U is "unclassified", which does not count at all.

    No, to the average TSR user, anything below C is a fail (anything below A*, for most). Technically, it's a pass.
