Then they are giving dishonest advice and should be ashamed of themselves. The requirements are very clearly stated throughout by UCAS.(Original post by Silent-Varjoisa)
I am not quite clear what you said?
Also I should mention I never left out any of my GCSES (I achieved 6A*s and 5 A's), but my school encouraged those who didn't do as well to leave out very low scoring ones.
Deliberate omission of information you know to be required is lying.(Original post by helenlouise123)
Just leave it out, why would they really care or have the time to check if everyone has submitted every qualification
no idea why the neg rep it's not lying its just not putting something

I'm pretty sure you're not meant to omit anything from your UCAS form, even if it's not tremendous; I have a friend who got an E in Economics (as well as AAAA in her other subjects) at AS, and wasn't allowed to leave it off.
Edit: Wtf? What did I do here to deserve negrep? If I'm factually wrong, please tell me, because it's good to know and I'm only going on things I learnt last year; if I'm not wrong, I really can't think of any other reasons to vote this down! The 'friend' isn't me and I'm not doing that irritating thing people do where they say 'my friend' and mean themselves - I don't even have an Economics AS!

I did not neg you. However, you are wrong in theory you do not have to show your GCSEs and AS grades but it is probably not a good idea especially with As it indicates that you are hiding something. It varies on different circumstances and its subjective in the end its up to the applicant.

Yes you do! The UCAS guidance explicitly states that ALL educational qualifications of any kind must be declared. This means that all GCSEs of G grade and above, and all ASs/A levels of grade E and above, MUST be entered on your application.
Thank you very much everybody, certainly more useful than the person my school employs to do this kind of thing..
