Oxford accepts my country's qualifications and I do meet them. But I have also taken some APs, the SAT 1 and 2. My first attempt at SAT didn't meet the minimum Oxford requires, but the second one did. Do even I need to submit all these scores (and not selecting the second attempt alone), event though my school examinations (non-American) meet qualifications by themselves?

While this was indeed helpful, it doesn't answer my question in its entirety, especially not from the point of view of someone who already meets Oxford's qualification requirements for their country. I meet the required marks for applicants from my country, but I have ALSO taken two APs and two SAT subject tests, as well as the SAT 1 test. On the SAT 1, I have two attempts. Am I required to disclose BOTH, even though I already meet Oxford's requirements without submitting ANY American qualifications in the first place?
The process works like this - when you apply you must declare all qualifications (we ask UK applicants to declare their GCSEs, for example, even though offers are not based on GCSEs). In short, the selectors want a complete record of your prior attainment.
If you are made an offer, you will be asked to document that you have those qualifications counting towards meeting your offer. If there was any doubt about other qualifications, you might be asked to document these too - but in nearly all cases (we can't remember an exception) the University relies on the school reference as confirming that qualifications listed are correct.
If qualifications are omitted, this would be misrepresentation (failure to disclose something UCAS requires candidates to disclose) and the University or College would be within its rights to rescind any subsequent offer. If in doubt, our advice is to declare.
Regarding SATS, we have a question did you complete this form?
If you did, we don't think you need to declare SAT attempt 1. If you didn't, we think you should declare it.
It sounds like your SAT 1 attempt isn't as high as SAT 2 and this is worrying you a bit. A lot of applicants have some results that are not the strongest and quite a few re-sit things. There are many posts on the Forum reassuring prospective applicants with less than perfect prior attainment records - including posts by current students who had bad days in the exam office but still got through.
Note to UK applicants reading this post: consult the forum and your school about AS grades that are cashed in or not cashed in for guidance.Last edited by BrasenoseAdm; 26-08-2016 at 09:43.
