    My girlfriend accidentally put 'Yes' for criminal convictions on her UCAS, she got a letter from Coventry today asking for more information. Is there a way to un-do this? Or will she have to phone all the unis?

    What a stupid thing to do :/.

    She can call up UCAS to change it but by now the uni's will have seen it and so she should call up UCAS to change it and then she'll need to call all her uni's and tell them it's been updated now. She should be quick too because although they won't say it i'm sure some uni's will reject her because of this criminal conviction.

    How do you do that - there's a big note saying "Only tick this if you DO have criminal convictions"? :lolwut:

    Well, there's two options: commit a crime, or contact Coventry (and all of the other unis) and inform them of the mistake.

    I'd personally opt for the latter, but the former has a certain edge...

    Actually, she got 2 A*s 1 A, and is actually very clever, just silly mistake to make. So I do not think I should 'dumb' her, taa

    Definately phone the individual universities and UCAS IMMEDIATELY. That particular option for declaring convictions is with regard to convictions which fall under the following categories:

    * Any kind of violence including (but not limited to) threatening behaviour, offences concerning the intention to harm or offences which resulted in actual bodily harm.
    * Offences listed in the Sex Offences Act 2003.
    * The unlawful supply of controlled drugs or substances where the conviction concerns commercial drug dealing or trafficking.
    * Offences involving firearms.
    * Offences involving arson.
    * Offences listed in the Terrorism Act 2006.

    So unless she wants to be treated as a rapist, drug dealer, arsonist, gun runner or terrorist......let them know she is innocent, NOW!!!! lol
