Hello everybody,

As part of my conditional offer to study at Warwick I was asked to verify my qualifications. Below is what was written in the offer email.

You should particularly note the following parts of your offer:
~ Verification of the reference on your UCAS application, as specified in our offer. ~ Verification of your qualifications, as specified in our offer. (ALL GCSE qualifications on UCAS form INCLUDING English Language)You are responsible for ensuring that we receive this information. If you have been asked for verification of your reference, or any qualifications you have already taken, you should make arrangements for your school or college to send this to us straight away to [email protected].Please note that if your school/college is sending a result by email or fax it must be from a suitable member of staff and from a school/college email or fax. There should be a covering email or fax header including your name, your UCAS number, and the name and position of the member of staff sending the information.


Basically, do they want verification of all the exams I have ever taken? If so, what document would they need for the school or college exactly? I left my secondary school five years ago now so would they still have this information?

They want verification of GCSEs it looks like, those would be the exam grades that you'd have entered into UCAS. And they want proof of reference, you'll have to ask your referee. Seems clear to me, unless I'm missing something

I was invited to interview but could not attend, so I withdrew my application.

If that is the case then I just hope that my old secondary school still has the information/ documents they need. I'm surprised they did not ask for my more recent qualifications. I shall call them again tomorrow to verify. Last time I called I couldn't verify as person on the phone sounded like they didn't want to talk :rolleyes:

Don't you have your GCSE certificates? I was sent mine by my school. But if you don't you'll have to get them I guess. Are you international is that why they're asking you perhaps? Assuming you're applying for an undergraduate degree all they care about is GCSE and A-Level grades really

I have all of my certificates, would scanned copies be enough to verify my qualifications? From reading the email I assumed they wanted an official email from my school stating I achieved such and such GCSEs at the school.

If that is the case then I can do this tomorrow itself! I will call to make sure though, thank you!

Yes scan them, they won't want or need the originals - you should have those. Why would they need a letter stating you achieved the grades when the certificate does that? You're just going to have to get your referee to contact them

Why could you not attend :0
I was in excruciating pain and pretty much lived at the hospital for almost two weeks. I did not know how long treatment was going to take either :/.
I could have waited a year and reapplied but since I already am a mature student I couldn't wait any longer, so I withdrew and hoped my other choices would give me offers
