    right well i called them up...had to explain to them the differences between maths studies, standard, higher level....etc...and then they were like okay so we'll change it to a standard level and i should get a score of 4. And then they were like, we apologize for any inconvience blah blah blah...and that they were simply not familiar with the IB standard requirements for architecture.....so yeah its fine, and they're not changing my offer to an unsucccessful!

    -but seriously i think a university should have full knowledge of every qualification!!! before they set their requirements!
    They should, yes.

    Glad it's resolved now.

    Glad that everything turned out to be fine. But hey, sometimes it's better they don't know too much about your exam system (when it comes to not declaring grades or hiding 'GSCE's' )

    AFAIK you're legally required to list all your qualifications which you have cashed it.

    No idea what that means, but I remember reading that somewhere.

    A 'U' Grade is a fail and you aren't given a certificate for them so I don't think you'll need to put it down. Can someone confirm?

    Well since it isn't a "qualification" per se, probably not.

    Yeah that's what I thought. But you definitely have to declare all other grades including D, E, etc.

    I would say it's probably better to just decline the grade rather than not put it down and hope UCAS doesn't see it!

    I'm sure a teacher told me to do that when I got a "U" in a subject, just in case.

    If you decline it, you don't have to put it down, since you dont actually have the qualification. You just have the individual modules.

    Regarding turning an Unsuccessful to Conditional.


    Just say one gets his final outcome (a rejection) and has a month to choose Firm + Insurance but then 2 weeks later an Unsuccessful turns to a Conditional, does the month before you have to decide start again (because there has been an alteration).


    Cheers

    You need to go to the university and find the subject-specific requirements. eg if it says 31 overall, no subject specifications then you should go to the general matriculation requirements. if you cover both of those, then you're fine. keep in mind, if they're asking HL of you, then you doing SL and going to that uni anyways should tell you that you may find the course v. difficult. you may need a lot of maths that you don't have.

    You have to decide by a certain blanket deadline, i.e. applicable to everyone. The deadline isn't determined by when you received your last decision.
