Is persian considered my native language?Watch
Will it count as a native language?
And no, it is not your native language fgs if you've only done an A level and don't speak it at home. Just put it down for what it is. One lie is not going to help your application.
Of course they will. Your name will surely give the game away. Nobody learns Persian from scratch at school, every admission tutor will assume that you've just picked up an easy A level in a language you already speak. Better to be honest about it.
Where you were born is irrelevant. What exactly do you mean by lessons? It sounds to me like you're trying to use Persian as your 3rd A level even though you spoke it beforehand.
The bottom line is that unis will work on the basis that either a) it's your native language, or b) that you have the advantage of having people around you (eg your parents) who know and speak it. From what you describe, option b) appears to be nearer the truth. In either case unis are likely to conclude that your A-level in Farsi is not worth as much as if you studied eg German.
Don't post on a public forums for opnions when you clearly don't want them. Just put the truth and be done with it.
There is a bit of a difference between a 'mother tongue' and a 'native language' but in terms of the OP's question they mean the same thing, i.e. the language you were brought up speaking at home. The OP didn't say she was taking classes in order to learn the language from scratch.
I asked her if her parents speak to her in Persian, she relied "unis wouldn't know that" which to me suggests they do, but she's unwilling to admit it.
Well there's no question in UCAS asking what language you speak with your parents. So they wouldn't know regardless of if I did or not. Which I said I do not
