    Hey, I'm applying to Oxford Biochem for 2017 entrance. I was wondering if Oxford is able to see the actual marks I got for my AS exams. Teachers cannot give us a comprehensive answer.
    Thanks in advance!

    Not unless you tell them. You have to declare grades not marks.

    If you get an offer, at some stage they will ask for your certificates.

    That's what I thought, and then my teachers told me that due to the change in spec in Chem and Bio our marks will be visible. Is that nonsense?

    Yes it's nonsense. And Oxford doesn't use your marks anyway. Just your grades.

    If anything marks are now less visible because linear/reformed AS/A-levels no longer have UMS anyway.

    Couldn't pick a college after I looked at a few on the open day, figured I'd be happy at any of the colleges (even Catz, even though I hate the architecture)
