    Not sure if this is the correct sub-forum for this question.

    I'm about to send off my UCAS application, but I can't find several of my GCSE certificates or my music certificates which I've listed on the application. Do most universities request all certificates at enrollment or just A-level ones?

    Haha!

    We have no answers, perhaps one of us should make it our mission to find out?
    Ring unis, ask uni friends etc?

    Or.. perhaps we could just leave it until it gets to the last minute...

    You may be asked to produce certificates for any or all of your qualifications. If you can't find them, arrange for duplicates to be provided. Even the music certificates may be relevant for some courses.

    I love you! In a non-creepy, entirely legit way...
    I was dreading having to fork out a stupid amount of money- money I DON'T HAVE, I'll add! - to get stupid certificates for grades I don't even want! :p:

    They may have done - but even if the uni doesn't want them at this stage (and some do, notwithstanding your friends' experience) you could need them for job applications later. The longer you leave it the more expensive and tiresome replacing the certificates becomes.

    Most jobs ask for A Levels and a 2:1 Minimum and whatever the person got in English or Maths at GCSE. Not ALL of them.

    If the OP doesn't have the money to get them at the moment she should be under no pressure. People who enrol students into university have common sense and it wouldn't be the first or last time a person has misplaced one or two GCSE certificates.

    I'm sure it won't be. The fact of the matter is, you must be able - if asked to do so, at any time - to prove any claims you have made on your UCAS form or a job application. Unis may get more careful about this in future, when there is such pressure on places. Employers are also doing much more thorough checks than they used to.

    The OP will have to make a judgement about what to do here, but if it were my call I'd say she should ensure that she has a complete set of certificates available.
