    Yes. You have to specify all grades and exams you have (or have done), even if you failed. It says so on the UCAS website.

    Yeah I thought that. Thank you for confirming that. Now I will just have to pay and send, then get my reference done

    I think it used to be Es and above, but now they want to know about Us (I could be wrong). But it's definitely Es and above.

    Yeah, sometimes it falls below the radar, but it's not worth it - if you don't put them on, they can refuse your whole application and basically ban you from applying to uni. So not worth that chance

    I failed a course in one year and in the next year I passed it. So do I need to put this on twice?

    Your partly right there he did act a bit over the top. But the question you asked had already been answered before, and it is pretty obvious. Hence why he used capital letters.
