    Nope I called initially about the travel claims form and thought I'd ask how they're sending out offers this year. And then she said none have gone out yet

    It's not your fault!!

    When you get an offer, do you have to send them a scan of EVERY SINGLE certificate of qualifications you've EVER done?! (GCSE, AS Levels etc..), and can they withdraw you if they see an extra gcse certificate for a grade in a subject that you've not put on your UCAS?

    Why would you not put down a grade you achieved? If it was an honest mistake (I don't really know how admissions works to clarify), I don't think they'd decline you after you got an offer simply because it costs the university time. I don't think you have to send scans either, the grades are supplied by the examination company (eg for Scotland it's supplied by the SQA.)

    I would let them know as soon as possible before you get an offer because they'll more likely be forgiving if it was a mistake rather than something you've tried to hide.

    A more concerning thing would be to have said you got a grade which you didn't achieve.

    Not A levels as they get sent it but they'll want to see your GCSE certificates most likely.

    It could be problematic, but if it wasn't relevant to the course or your offer they may ignore it. That will be up to the university. Why was it omitted from UCAS?

    Basically, I did GCSE maths exam in november AND june, and in november I got an A, but June I got A*, and I have certificates for both. But when it came to applying for university, all of my teachers said to me to put on ucas the A* one and not the A. Thats why it was omitted.

    So say if they do ask for all of them, do I send all BUT the certificate of the A grade one?

    Well the A was sufficient so it shouldn't matter either way. Future reference though, you should declare all your grades :yes:.

    But those would be your grades that you got for each module.
    You would put the grade that you got overall for maths GCSE.

    Okay, I hope so, because I did hear from a few others too that you're meant to put both the A and the A* but my teachers insisted it's the A* to be put on.

    Nope, because the November one was a full GCSE grade, rather than a module exam, I could've stuck with the A and that would've been my overall grade for maths GCSE, but I chose to increase it by doing it again in June.
