    Arguably, isn't this just like predicted grades for A-levels?

    could i theoretically get an unconditional by doing this and then just passing it and handing the grades to them in September?
    Surely it won't make a difference to you if you apply being honest and get a conditional offer rather than unconditional? If your application is good enough it shouldn't make a difference to whether you get an offer anyway.

    OP the certificate will have the date on it. I doubt you'll get away with it, so it's not worth it - it'll void your entire application just because you thought you'd have a go at lying about communication skills, of all subjects. I wouldn't risk it, just put it as 'pending', and perhaps your referee can give you a high recommendation that you'll get the grade needed/you can get them to predict a grade for you as well as your A levels.

    Wouldn't they be able to see when you took it? And if that is after you submitted your application then....

    EDIT - punkyrocker beat me to the same point :rolleyes:

    If it can be proved with a certificate, don't lie.

    Put the grade as Pending? I'm sure you can do that for all qualifications on the application. After all, if it's just a Pass/Fail subject; it's not like they need to know your predicted grade, just that you're studying towards it.

    If they ask for proof of your qualifications, you won't be able to provide them with it.
    If they ask for this after you get your certificate, they will see the date on the certificate.

    They reserve the right to withdraw your application or offer and inform UCAS. They reserve the right to kick you off their course if they find out later on.

    It's not even worth it.

    give it to them?

    they dont check until september so i can achieve it before then
    But when they see the date of the qualification on your certificate they're going to know you lied..?
    (Dunno if that will result in you not getting a place, but I'm sure you might feel a little silly? :rolleyes: )

    If you are gonna get it, why bother to lie about it. The offer will be conditional on this, and if you are gonna make it, its hardly a problem.

    Get caught lying, and get your UCAS voided. Thats what has happened to of couple people at college. Now they feel pretty stupid over doing it over pretty petty things.

    You can lie- but don't. A bit of exxageration on the PS is one thing (everyone does it), but talking about actual qualifications is summat different...

    Why go for an unconditional when you can get a conditional, pass and get in anyway? Strange boy.
