    I read an article saying that "next year" the authorities are making it compulsory to disclose all individual modular marks to universities - do they mean those of us applying in September for 2006 entry, or the year after?

    No, they’ll be running trials next year, followed by a full roll out for September 2007 entry. So if you’re taking AS Levels next year, they’ll be submitted along with A2 UMS marks the following year.
    I found this in the 'general university discussion' forum. Your answer is found above.

    thanks!

    Damn I hoped they would be If we've cashed in our AS results, is there any opportunity to put the individual modular marks or marks out of 300 other than putting it in your PS/reference?

    Doesn't it waste a lot of space on your reference? I think there should be an optional section on UCAS where you can put modular marks if you want to

    I remember one of my teachers put the UMS mark for a module in someone's reference...

    Ask your teachers to mention your UMS marks out of 300 in your reference. I plan to for everything except history. It shouldn't take up much space really.

    Well, today I just missed my university offer by 2 UMS marks in History. When I rang my firm choice to ask if I had a place they said "Absolutely, you're in. You were so close anyway in...History, just 2 UMS".

    So, uni's clearly do get modular scores aswell as just grades.

    In conclusion, do your modular scores really matter? How significant are they? I've seen quite some students at my college who already got A's retaking 1 or 2 papers to get a higher modular score. Some say it doesn't really matter as long as u get an A for the overall grade. But some say the Uni ring ur school for the modular scores. How significant is it?

    Universities only see's the overall grade. I believe that Oxbridge only see modular scores. In the future, universities can see module scores (heard that on ITV news by Anthony McClaran yesterday). Therefore, in the future, it's significant.

    Are you sure on that? I missed my firm choice by 4 UMS and they accepted me, I thought it was down to a good grade in my extra subjects, but if they saw our UMS marks then that would explain alot

    Actually, I thought it was just Cambridge that requested modular scores, not Oxford as well. Can anyone clarify this? :confused:

    They don't know our UMS scores this year, which is good. If they do, I would be screwed too.
