    I have to complete a Keyskills Numeracy course to get into the university I want as my GCSE Maths grade is not good enough. I start the course in January so I wont have finished it by the deadline my UCAS application needs to be in for. Does anyone know, in the education/subject section of the UCAS application form, where Keyskills Level 2 comes under? Would it be GCSE as a Level 2 is equal to a A-C.

    I want to put it in my education section, rather then my personal statement as advised by Connections, because I don't want the person who reads my application to see my GCSEs and then not bother reading my personal statement as the grade they want isn't good enough.

    Thanks.

    Thank you! I have no idea how I missed that.
    I got a letter from the college I have to go to and it said the course title is Numeracy L1/2. Should I type that in the Other box or should I pick Application of Number?

    Its defiantly Key Skills. I found out I needed to do it when Connections contacted the University I wanted to apply to. They said I needed it or a better GCSE grade. Connections then put me in contact with my local college and I went and done the test. I got a level 2 in the test and then I got a letter the other day saying I start the course on the 11th January 2011.
