    Hey everyone,

    I am just asking for help, as I do not know, what should I do. Speculating too much.

    As an international student I obviously need to meet english language requirements (IELTS 7), but right now, I passed only FCE(gA) and I am about to take IELTS in March. Should I write all of this in UCAS application form or not?

    Thank you for answers!!

    You need to list any qualifications you already hold, and you should add IELTS to your form as pending with the date you are going to take it.

    Plenty of people receive offers with their IELTS score as a condition, so this won't disadvantage you

    Because the problem is, I got the FCE gA in 2014 and that is pretty late..so I do not want to submit it..or should I?

    And with the plan about IELTS, would it matter, if I let it blank? I guess they should make a condition about this in offer, right?

    I know, it seems like I don't read your answers..but I am just curious about possibilities..

    If you do not enter qualifications you have, it's considered fraud, and your offer can be withdrawn.

    If you don't list IELTS on your statement, universities will probably reject you because they'll you don't meet the English language requirements.

    UCAS are very strict about listing all the qualifications you hold or are planning to take, and if you don't do this, you risk having offers withdrawn at a later date.

    OK, thank you! Much clearer!

    Last question, if I am going to take IELTS at British Council and I type this in UCAS form, they want me tick time from-till when I studied there and how (but I will never study there - just take the exam) or should I enter IELTS under my school? (in spite of that I am not going to take it there)

    AHHHHHH

    Can you just list the day/month you're taking the exam? Universities will be used to this, and it shouldn't cause an issue.
