    I did the same thing, but not deliberately.

    I declared my 3 GCSE short courses as full courses accidentally, after accepting an unconditional offer etc.

    The panic took over and i had to let the admissions officer know, now I'm finding out if i can still get in.

    I bet he was a member of this forum.
    Lying about grades is pretty common here, I guess.

    If he was at Cambridge would this have been detected? Since Cambridge ask for individual UMS score break down in the application... Oxford only seem to ask for the overall grade(s)...

    Does this mean admission to Oxford is easier than Cambridge?
    No way... Cambridge sucks compared to oxford :/

    Well he most likely would have failed or got kicked out anyway. As the artice MSB posted says he was struggling and other students started to notice it to. He only attended around four out of eight tutorials and made up excuses for not attending. That was what made the teachers suspicious.

    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.

    Hello,

    I hope that you are well.

    My name is Parmbir Gill and I shall be hosting the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) Q&A seminar for Sucedo tomorrow afternoon at 5pm. Just to explain how it shall all work - you shall be sent login details to the site's conferencing facilities at 5pm via e-mail, after which the Q&A session shall begin promptly at 5:15pm and finish towards 5:45pm. Questions can be asked either via voice-to-voice (through a local-rate 020 telephone number or through a plugged-in computer microphone) and text formats.

    Whilst there shall be ample time during the session itself to put forward to me any questions you may have regarding the TSA itself or your application to Oxbridge, if you have a query currently, please do feel free to e-mail me this in advance of the session, and I shall proceed to open the Q&A session with my answer to this (i.e. before we move onto in-session question requests).

    I look forward to meeting you tomorrow.

    Best Wishes,

    Parmbir.


    I pity anyone who actually paid for that ****.

    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.
    Wow, how many people do you think have lied about their grades to get into uni? I wouldn't be able to, I'd always be worried someone would find me out, and the guilt would be horrible.

    It is worrying how he could have potentially graduated from the countries top university if he was slightly less deceitful.
