    On a CV it is not illegal to omit data right?

    Eg I want to write 15 A*-A grades instead of 16 A*-C if that makes sense
    Yeah I think so. It''s up to you what you put on it, so long as it's not false information (e.g. Saying you had an A* in Photography specifically, when you didn't ).

    It is however inadvisable. If later on they find out you omitted information, it generally doesn't look good and they'll be asking questions. Better to be honest, and explain why you had a C in an interview than treat it as it never happened.

    But that could suggest 1A*, 1A and 9B grades.
    It quite frankly doesn't matter. It could also suggest 10 A*s and 1 B. So long as you're within that bracket, it's fine.

    Do employers even care what grade you got in what subject? You might as well have so many a*-c in how many subjects, so they dont get bored of your cv and go on to the next one

    I might disown BTEC Sport:lol:, just turn down the certificate.
    Sucks
    (Original post by chloe--)
    It's definitely illegal to falsify/lie (say you have 15 A*s when you really only have 5 Cs), but I think you can miss stuff off?

    The grade boundaries for me look pretty good. Other than Electronics, which this year has jumped up to 96 for an A* rather than like, 83 last year (out of 120...)
    Yeah it is omission. I know I can't on UCAS.

    I doubt they'd care about a C in photography... And they wouldn't find out :mmm:

    It's your choice. I doubt I could do the same thing as I haven't got enough GCSEs to leave out a likely B in French

    I completely forgot about my OCR nationals (double award ) :rofl: So I'd have 11 GCSEs and equivalent if I omit French, which wouldn't be too bad.

    Don't be. GCSEs aren't really worth that much anyway. Their primary purpose is for you to get into a good College, that's all. The average amount of A*s gained by Oxbridge students I believe I read somewhere was 6. If you think about it, that's including all the ridiculously good 14 A*s students as well, so they really aren't that important.
