    Here's my UCAS btw:

    Attachment 469611
    It's fine! Anyway....lots of people get 2.2s in their first year and get their act together in years 2 and 3. You graduated with a 2.1, that's all that matters.

    But you only graduated with one degree. If they asked you to list the modules then you would have just put your first year modules (because they still counted part of your final degree).

    You should be careful, because having what looks like a 2:2 degree (a year doesn't really give you a classification) could end up with automatic rejection.

    If I were you I would contact UCAS and get it removed. You graduated with a 2:1 degree in Biological sciences, thats all you need to state.
    I might phone UCAS on Monday and ask if they can remove the 2:2 bit

    Do you think you can tell that Exeter is first year and Teesside is second and third?

    Would it be worth ringing the admissions where I've applied and just clarifying?

    Yeah, because if they just employ some form of automatic screening (i.e. auto rejecting people with a 2:2) or something it may not actually be a human who reviews your academics. It also looks like you got your actual degree in 2 years.

    Just list all your modules and grades under the biological sciences degree.

    I'm not sure, actually. Perhaps it is best to ring UCAS, as ForestCat suggested.

    In my personal statement I have explained the degree switch so it won't marry up if I just list it all under biological sciences. I will ring them and ask them to remove the 2:2 bit though. Can UCAS edit an application on your behalf?

    I am not sure, but they're the people to speak to.

    Except that all the modules have counted towards the biological science degree... you didn't start again from year 1.

    UCAS will be used to people needing to make changes to their application. Speak to them and then email all your choices and get them to add a note on to your application explaining.

    I've submitted my PID to Pearson Vue and Acer, but I cant see any trace of it on my Pearson Vue Account. I received an email to say I had updated my personal information but now I'm worried that they havent received my PID.

    Nope, I can't see it there. Just all the other questions about parents. No questions about uni or PID again

    I've just had a look at mine and mine's not there either, I checked it approximately a thousand times so I know it was. I think they must remove the page after the deadline to prevent any alterations. I wouldn't worry.

    Are we meant to receive some kind of confirmation email from Pearson that our results have been sent? I haven't heard anything apart from the updated personal information email.
