    No, they'd probably ask you to send the original document - well, I had to send my original graduation certificate off to Imperial.

    If you attend school overseas how do you send your exam results? Do you just mail your results to the admissions tutor?

    Definitely write a letter to your firm and insurance uni's and to UCAS explaining that you've taken an AEA in xxx subject with xxx exam board.

    it will save any potential confusion from UCAS the week before you get the results
    Can you suggest who exactly to write to at the uni's concerning this? General admissions? Our actual subject admissions?

    Yes, it's just the grades. By the way if you are wondering when the universitites get the results, they get it a week before results day.

    It will be bad if they gie out UMS though.
    arg thats so unfair! what if you missed out on your grade by one mark?? they wouldn't know! i missed out on an A at As level media by one damn mark

    All examinations included in the ABL (awarding body linkage - the connection between UCAS and the exam boards) scheme are transferred - which is why it can cause problems if you take exams which aren't on your UCAS form or drop exams with ARE on your UCAS form without notifying UCAS/universities.
    Hello PQ,
    I have done EDEXCEL Maths both NEW and OLD. But in my ucas form i indicated that i 'm doing the OLD one but now i want my NEW exam to be caunted. My school has cashed me in for the NEW one. Would the unis still get the results for the old one and the new one or just the new one?
    Should i ring them?or UCAS?


    (OLD MATHs= P1,P2,P3)
    (NEW MATHs= C1,C2,C3,C4)

    I'm afraid I haven't got a clue.

    It might be worth contacting UCAS to see what they say...I'd also contact your firm and insurance unis ASAP and let them now there's been a slight change when it comes to your results and that you're worried they wont be sent to them automatically.

    If UCAS aren't very reassuring just be ready on results day to fax your results slip direct to your uni's to confirm your grades - it shouldn't cause any real problems
    Thank you PQ.

    On my ucas form I put that Iwas going to complete key skills communication by august this year. I took the exam and passed but with the workload of 4 A2's never got round to finishing portfolio. Since neither of my offers includes key skills is this going to matter do you think? Slightly worried now :confused:

    My offer does not include key skills as well, and I havn't finished the portfolio. All I've done was called UCAS and the universities to cancel the key skills qualifications.

    I got my communication key skills last year. I got it during March as I've done it in January. It depends when you've done it. If you have done it in January 2005, you should get your results on March. If you have done it this June, you would get it on August 18.
