What happens if you don't declare all A-Levels on your UCAS application.
(Last Year i sat AS physics with OCR however i got a C, but i went to another college and am doing Physics with edexcel along with maths and further maths)
Since i did my previous physics exam with a different college and different exam board, do i need to put that on my UCAS?

As far as im aware, you dont have to mention it. But my old head of 6th form said to mention them, as it shows you at least attempted them (even if you didnt get the best grade ever). Although you did it at a different college, with a different exam board, it might be worth mentioning it. You got a C at it, which isnt bad. Plus it might be worth a few extra ucas points, which could come in useful.

You MUST mention them.
Your referee has to confirm that you've listed all qualifications. UCAS also receive qualifications details from the exam boards to match to your application, if you miss off qualifications that can cause problems with UCAS matching your results.
If it comes to light that you've withheld information then you risk having your application (or in extreme cases your degree) withdrawn due to fraud.
Everything relevant to your application should be included. A mediocre result will not do your application any harm, lying WILL - especially given the very high chances of getting caught out.
Lots of people every year fail to disclose information and get away with it (because universities aren't complete ********s) - but that doesn't mean that you will get away with it. Putting yourself deliberately in a position where your universities could withdraw you due to fraud is just daft.

You must declare all existing exam results even if you are retaking them..
Not to do so is considered fraud and a University will cancel any offer/place if you are found out. It simply isnt worth the risk.Last edited by returnmigrant; 01-04-2013 at 12:54.
