    hi I'm applying to transfer to second year to a different uni, from my current one. Only problem is i did my first year at this uni before but failed. I was wondering would they know? because i've been given the same ucas number but i didn't put this first year down on the application because i failed.
    edit: noticed the grammar error in the title, please forgive me grammar Nazis.

    You MUST declare all education after age 11.

    Yes the uni will know and yes they are likely to take a dim view of you trying to withhold information. Contact them asap to apologise for the mistake and give them the relevant information.

    Yes they will know as your details will get linked to your previous record.

    And with your record of messing about its unlikely any Uni will bother wasting their time with you.

    So you failed first year at a uni, started another uni and now you wanna go back to the first uni you attended again? Mess. And yes I'm afraid they will know and if you fail a year somewhere and apply again I highly doubt they would even consider you unless you have some really impressive stuff on your PS.
