    Excuse my ignorance but I have an unconditional offer and in the conditions it says I need to provide verification of my results. Is this the usual procedure?

    I'm guessing so since if not, it would be easy to lie about your results?

    This is usual procedure for any course at any university, you have to send off or turn up with proof of your results to prove you have a). What you claimed you already had b). They were the grades you said :yep:

    Yeah, it's normal, otherwise any idiot could pitch up claiming A grades in anything they wanted. The university needs to check you're not a lying *******, but isn't implying that you are, and nor do they suspect you (I'm guessing) It's standard, don't worry.

    Unless you are a lying *******, in which case, time to panic!

    Yep, completely normal. I had to send scanned copies of my certificates in. Each university will have its own policy. I'm sure they'll be contact soon.

    They might ask you to take them in when you enrol. Each uni and department is different with their policies. Birmingham wanted me to bring them in on enrolment day, Nottingham said to either send scans or bring them to enrolment.

    Some unis, like yours, don't ask at all which is weird to me.

    Seems strange to me; maybe because I had A-Levels. They were more interested in whether I was fluent in Danish.

    They can check, can't they?
    I mean if they know before you get your results in August (for people applying to enter that year), surely they can check. And they could easily verify with the sixth form/college.

    I think if it's only certain types of grades that are passed on and only those awarded that year. Most just ask to see certificates because it's easier for them than chasing after your sixth form/college.

    All three of my unconditionals require my certificates. It seems standard. Not really a problem is it?

    You're meant to bring them to induction day in the Octagon when you bring all your student finance stuff and blah blah.

    But that's not for aggggges.

    The LSE still haven't asked me to verify my results, or prove that my remark actually raised my grade.

    I'm guessing it might happen once I enrol.

    So far I've got two unconditional offers, both of which don't have any set conditions and don't ask for my results....it would make sense to see the proof? Wonder why they haven't asked...
