    HELP! I'm such a twit, On My UCAS which has been sent/processed I put the wrong examining board in for Biology A2, I put AQA instead of OCR (I Put in the AS as OCR and the A-level as AQA pending), any ideas on what I can do (it's half term now so school is closed)? any help would be greatly appreciated!

    On the 13th Of October I submitted my UCAS Application form, and it has since been processed, but I've noticed a mistake in the qualifications section, instead of putting down OCR as the examining board for my A-level Biology (marked as pending) I put down AQA (That said, I have put down OCR Biology for my AS), I will be contacting UCAS shortly, so they can change it, so It would help if you could ammend your records
    hows that sound? (just have to add on bits for separate unis i.e. the course etc)

    well at least the oxford admissions people are nice, as funnily enough I made a mistake on the online payment form and had to email them about it (hopefully they don't remember me, they'll probably call me "that stupid kid who keeps messing things up"), lol

    EDIT: EICK! I just sent two of the emails form my yaypunkrock gmail account, haha let's hope st andrews/warwick don't notice.

    I did the same last year. The unis don't care just tell UCAS as they give your grades to uni.

    Make sure you tell UCAS, as they may have problems matching your A Levels results up to you and sending them to your unis. They'll be expecting you to have an AQA result, and you won't have one. And they might not realise the OCR result is yours

    If your application has not been sent off, then your teacher can return it to you if he/she finds any errors on it.

    do UCAS attach your breakdown of gcse/a-level/music instrument grade achievements to your application and send it on to your Uni's?

    UCAS receive A Level results early and then send them on to your firm and insurance uni. This is why they need all the details to be correct.

    For other results, they only send what you typed on the form and do not check if it is right
