    Has UCAS confirmed yet that it requires your UMS scores for each subjects along with your grades?

    Are you required to declare your individual module scores or do you declare your overall UMS score out of 300?

    Thanks Juno.

    Have I understood correctly:
    You HAVE to give Universities all of your module GRADES.

    They can, in theory, ask for module MARKS but this is unlikely and applies only for borderline candidates.

    Universities can set offers based on module MARKS, if they wish.

    Thanks once again.

    Oh, and anyone that helps will get 2x positive rep.

    In some ways I hope this happens and in others I don’t. A Aim higher person spoke to my year about this yesterday, according to them it will only be called into play with people applying to competitive Uni's or on competitive courses. It's because so many people are applying to places like Oxford or on medicine courses with A's. It's basically a way for them to help differentiate and find the best people for the course.

    Not speaking from experience, but under normal circumstances, it shouldn't be as challenging as history.

    Sociology....It honestly depends on what teacher you have. Some teach it differently to others. I've found that it is quite easy in some respects, it's just you have to get your head round the theories, terms, different methods and case studies. I've found though it has fitted quite nicely in with some other of my lessons. For a good idea at what to expect check out my teachers website. It gives you quite a good idea of what to expect.
