    can you lie about your GCSE's on UCAS? what's to stop you from doing that, especially if you apply as an independant candidate.

    Because some uni's ask for proof of your GCSE certificates.

    Universities will want to see certificates, or can ask for confirmation from exam boards. Get caught out and they can revoke your offer.

    what about saying you didn't take GCSE's because you were in a different school

    Well what qualifications did you do at that other school? You will have to list them.

    You mean, what if you have done no qualifications whatsoever?

    Then good luck trying to get a place.

    Then you list whatever you have done at your French school. If you have done nothing, you explain why.

    Edit: It would have been much easier if you just said that at the start, instead of saying you were going to lie.

    Did you do the french equivalent? Enter that? They have long lists of qualifications from all over the world which you can enter

    You don't have to put the brevet down if you don't want to. They don't care about it at all though so even if you got bad marks you might as well just put it. I only got 13 or something like that and it doesn't seem to have done me any harm.

    Why would you even think of making up GCSE results??

    I lied on my UCAS form...

    That's such a weird thing to say but:
    It was accidental
    and
    I put in a LOWER grade than I got

    So it was really just a mistake...

    Probably something to do with the other type of topics you created.
