    Hey! I have 3 questions regarding UCAS:

    1) I am not entirely sure whether to put my module marks or not? The reason being is that they are quite erratic; in some I got D's and C's yet for my A2 English Lit paper I got 119/120, which I feel is a worthwhile mention, but if I insert one, I have to insert them all!!

    Would this affect my application somewhat? do module marks matter or are admissions officers only concerned about your overall grades??

    2) I did ICT for GCSE but I am not entirely sure which 'qualification' it is; on the certificate it says "Level 2 National Certificate (Vocationally-related qualification)" which doesn't seem to be an option on the list!! Shall I just put it as a 'GCSE' and leave it at that?

    3) I thought it'd be nice to mention I got almost full marks for my Lit paper in my personal statement seeing as I am not sure I am going to include my module marks, but is this a good idea??

    Thanks everyone!

    You can ask your referee to mention particularly good module marks, though the overall grade matters more.

    If it's a National Certificate, the advice from UCAS is this:
    (Original post by UCAS)
    Group awards

    Such as HNCs, HNDs, National Certificates, National Progression Awards (NPAs), Professional Development Awards (PDAs), Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs)

    Enter the title for the whole course, the date when you finished or expect to finish the course and the result or grade. If you're still studying for the qualification, leave the result/grade box blank. Then enter details for all the units or subjects that make up the qualification. If you're entering details of an HNC or HND that includes Group Award Graded Units, give details for these units by putting 'Graded Unit' after the unit title, for example, HNC Business Graded Unit 1.

    If you have taken, or are taking, HNC or HND units, national units or workplace-assessed units, but not as part of a course or group award, enter the details as free-standing units.
    It's not really appropriate in your PS, let your referee do it instead.
