Where on UCAS does it say anything about your parents education :confused:
Even if it does (which I'm fairly positive it doesn't) why would it matter?

On the one hand, you will get absolutely no advantage by lying about your parents' education. On the other hand, you could potentially sacrifice all of your offers if they find out that you're lying. You can only lose, so don't do it.

It does. Can't remember which section but it definitely does.

Don't ever lie on ucas, I wrote down all my grades even the ones I wasn't proud with. But trust me its not worth it.

Why on earth would you feel the need to lie? It's not them that'll be going to the university but you. Just be straight up and honest and keep things clean on UCAS. You're potentially putting your future at risk if you even think about lying about anything.

I don't think it affects your application, it's just for their data isn't it? so they can try and attract more first generation uni goers? they'd never find out, but why lie..
