New Hall have asked me to send in a copy of all my certificates of exams ive sat since the age of 16. I can send them a copy of my GCSE results but my AS Levels were not cashed in by my school. So shall i just send them my GCSE certificates? :confused: Do you guys reckon they'll want proof of my AS grades? Thanks.

Hey, I got confused by this too. I only have GCSE certificates, I will be presented with A2 certificates after results. I don't think schools generally distribute AS certificates, so GCSE should be fine. My letter from King's says something like 'Send in GCE certificates (if appropriate)'. In our cases, it's not, so I wouldn't worry.

Yeah im pretty sure cambridge checks AS grades electronically, given that most schools dont bother giving out the certificates separately, and just wait til the A2. I also think they verify the UMS points you write on the special questionnaire via the exam boards as well. I wouldnt worry.

Of course they will; it's the only way of determing the validity of your declared grades.

Yeah otherwise we could all just make up grades and say we had full marks in every subject or something.

You might want to send a copy of your results from AS, it may not be a certificate but it at least shows you got that result, that's what I did last year anyway.

Do all colleges asked for certificates? Surely it would make sense for them to wait 'til after A2 exams, seeing as acceptance is conditional on those anyway!

No need to worry. It's just for completenesses sake really. Just send your GCSE ones. I've been here for 2 terms now and I still haven't given them copies of my AS or A-Level certificates......they don't seem bothered. If they are (which I some how doubt) they will contact you again.

Really - don't worry.
