Hi!
I have my offer for Edinburgh and I firmed it (Very excited) but today I got a message on the University portal site asking for all my GCSE certificates. I was just wondering if anyone else got a message about sending GCSE certificate scans to the Uni?
I just thought it was quite strange and sudden to ask for them now.

Hey congrats!!! I'm doing International Relations too and I'm also from the US... are you by chance on our Facebook group?
I´m sorry I literally just saw this post! I´m in the facebook page but I haven´t been active in it at all I´m afraid. Whereabouts in the US are you from?

Because you might simply have made up your grades, so they want to check.

What happens if I cancel my offer for Halls after the week they've given me to cancel it? Am I still bound to the contract or is that just a threat they make?

Cheers

No one is probably watching this thread but I desperately need help. I forgot to send in my GCSE certificates to Edinburgh and the deadline was 31 July (I thought it was 31 August because I am clearly an idiot). Will they have revoked my application if I send them tomorrow morning (if I get a place)? Or am I just going to get an angry email?

Please help!!!

I wasn't able to send in my certificates as I had to wait for a replacement to arrive. I only sent mine in last Friday after being given a 17th July deadline haha. They're pretty chill about when you send them in, as long as it's within 10 days of being given your unconditional/before the 31st of August.

hey guys,
so i've received my A-level results on August 13th, and i have fulfilled the conditions of offer made by edinburgh uni. However, it has been three days and i haven't received an unconditional offer yet. is the delay common or should i be concerned? i have sent them an email to make sure everything's okay, but so far, there has been no response. I'm quite worried. Anyone expecting their unconditional offers after receiving A-level results?

That's strange, I got my unconditional as soon as track updated on Thursday morning... I suppose it could just be an error, just try asking them I suppose. Hope you get it all sorted.

Really? I hope so too, i've sent emails to UoE and i've sent a message to UCAS via facebook. Apparently they're 'busy' so i'll have to wait a while for their replies. But i'm feeling anxious, as i also have to submit my Visa application which will take a while to process. Worried i might arrive late to Edinburgh. :/ Anyways, thanks for your response!
