    Hi
    I am very confused right now
    I am applying after a GAP year and i am going to resit in A-levels in Mathematics and Physics.I got U in both and B in media studies i am only mentioning media studies in that attempt.
    so tell me what to do.
    Would ill be in any disadvantage if ill mention my Us in these subjects in considering admission and what if i don't mention
    Read the first posts on this thread.

    You MUST mention all official grades.

    That includes failures and U grades.

    Put it all in - withholding information makes your application technically fraudulent. You risk expulsion from your degree if it is discovered at a later date. The chances of it being discovered are VERY high (matching qualification happens at both UCAS and after you start university through the national pupil database).

    Universities consider lying and fraud to be far more damning in an applicant than a few U grades.

    So do I really have to put my AS (First year) grades on there even though I didn't continue on the second year and left the Sixth form to do a course?

    I Just need confirmation; all AS levels should be declared as GCE Advanced Subsidiary(s), all my A-Levels should be declared as GCE Advanced Level(s) and the A-levels I'm retaking should be entered for a second time as GCE Advanced Level(s) that are pending.

    Hi, I'm not so sure if I have done this entirely correctly- I would appreciate if some of you could check what I have done here just for some reassurance.

    I'm retaking my C2 Mathematics paper, although I have dropped Maths now.
    I'm retaking 'Aspects of Narrative' for AS, so I have left it as 'pending' for 08/2016, however would I also put this as 'pending' under GCE Advanced Level for 08/2016 as well?

    Thanks in advance!

    The point is it is for your universities to decide what is relevant - you put everything in as requested.

    They'll almost certainly agree that those old grades aren't relevant but they get to make that decision not you.

    when entering gcse grades into ucas it has a drop down, i did triple science and added "single award" as core science and "additional science" for additional but for further additional there isn't anything i can use. theres an option that says additional science (applied) which i think might be the triple science one but im not sure. theres also load of other science options but none look like they mean triple science, anyone have any idea?

    Hi. My teacher at college who is in charge of our ucas applications told us today that we should 'leave off' bad AS and GCSE grades. He said we shouldn't be including anything that is not going to 'sell' us to the universities. He said he will be reviewing our applications before they get sent and will take off bad grades. This scared me as I have read the posts on TSR about how serious it is. I don't think he is encouraging us to lie, I think perhaps he is not aware of the rule. What should I do? Is there something on ucas that I can show him?

    Oh right...I can't see them I'm afraid. I thought there may be links to ucas so I did check very carefully but all I can see are links to two other TSR threads and an email for ucas.

    I've just sent in my application 2 days ago, and I have just realised I have put in my predicted grades instead of my actual AS grades I got this year :s

    I take health and social double award, and I got BC but I accidentally put down a BB which is my predicted grades :s

    Everything else was correct, just this one grade! What do I do? Its a Saturday, and I have just called UCAS and they are closed! I don't think I can wait till Monday, I just want to change this ASAP because I am really scared and panicking
