    Haha, what? 10 As at A-Level...?! No one gets that! If you're going to lie, at least make it something vaguely credible. Like 4 or 5.
    Some people do. I fancy quite a number would if they only bothered to take so many.

    Haha, fair enough. Bloody hell, 21 As at A-Level over 2 years? That's insane. Point still stands, though. If he'd maybe said 4 or 5 instead then of 10 he'd have been more likely to get away with it.

    I know a medic in my year who lied about what grade he got in his previous degree, boosting it to a 2:1. He got away with it up until third year (last year), when he ended up confessing all to his tutor in an emotional outburst. If he hadn't told his tutor, I don't think anyone would have found out.
    Really?

    What a fool.

    Interesting. So if if he said he achieved 4 or 5 A's it wouldn't have been suspicious?
    :rofl: fair point

    Are they kicking him out?

    Hope not
    Why do you hope not? The douchebag only got AAA, like thousands of other applicants who apply every year and are rejected.

    Ah well, he had to take TWO gap years just to get AAA, so it is likely he will fail his degree in the end anyway.

    What was the point? He had three A grades so after that they only really care about interview/admissions tests (I thought).

    Imagine if he had got away with it and came out with a degree at Oxford, oh my word!

    He almost got away with it, he just went a bit too far with the lies.

    So he originally got BBB and his school's response was:

    We advised him not to apply to university immediately, as frankly his grades were too poor

    Gosh.
    I'm upset not getting in, and not putting anything on my PS that couldn't be verified on pieces of paper. (ie.official documentation)
    He deserves to be there if he got through the TSA and interview, but he should just have said he got 3 As.
    Can't blame him though, he must really have wanted to get there. :/
