    hello everyone
    When filling in the education section on ucas, I didn't disclose one of the grades.
    The situation is, in year 11 I was told to do Maths AS (the CIE board) by my school. Then I moved to a different country and went into 6th form and had to do Maths AS again, to get the full A-level, as the exam board was different-edexcel
    Thus, I haven't entered my Maths AS CIE grade (although I got an A)
    However, I have to send in my certificates, and the certificate with Maths AS has another grade which I did disclose.
    Is there a chance that the uni will withdraw my application? I understand its my fault for being so stupid, but any advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    There is a chance, yes, as the certificates show that there is information you left off your application form and they may question whether there are other certificates they haven't seen with other subjects too. However, given its essentially another maths qualification showing you can do maths equally as well as in your other exam then I wouldn't expect them to deal with it in the same way as if you'd missed GCSE/A level qualifications off because the grades were poor, which is often the case.

    All you can do is send them the certificates and see what happens. You don't have another choice.

    yeah, I guess thats the only thing I can do. Oh hope they won't withdraw the offer because of such a little thing.
    anyway thanks for the advice!
