    no I actually applied to Oxford for a foundation year programme which was launched this year
    I got the offer from oxford but it wasnt through UCAS
    Oxford told me to ring them with my grades and the grades they asked me for are pretty similar to what my firm wanted.. all my offers were conditional both on and Off UCAS
    I dont even want to go to my firm, I was meant to take a gap year but the foundation year opportunity came

    this is why i really need good grades so I can take up my Oxford offer

    So that being said, does your insurance AUTOMATICALLY reject you if you got into your firm choice university?? or does this mean i got bad grades?
    I didnt know Oxford did a foundation year degree, what course did you apply for?

    Has anyone here not declared their 4th AS Level on their UCAS form and got away with it?
    I got AAB in my AS Levels which I AM SOO GASSED for, but unfortunately I got an E in my 4th one - is it worth declaring?

    Hi, well done on your results! I was just wondering if you could share some key things that you did in order to achieve your a* in maths? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

    make sure you summon all your attention on c3 and c4, just ignore other units. I was lucky enough that I only needed to score a minimum of 30% on my s1 to get an a*. Make sure you dont make any mistakes and practice spotting errors (i recommend playing minesweeper)

    I dont think you will get away with it.
    Firstly your school checks all your **** and matches it with statement of results before being approved and sent off.
    Then when you get into a uni they will check your certificates and since certifcates share results on the same board if that subject has the same bord as any of the other ones they will see you didnt declare it have thenpower to rescind your place.
    Basically, don't do it.

    I don't think you have to declare it if it's a fail? Is an E a fail?
