    Looking for help please....

    I left university for a year due to having a baby, I decided I did not want to persue the course I was on anymore and re applied for a course. I had already spoken to the course director before applying, so she already knew my situation.

    I accepted through UCAS and am just about to start on the 21st. However I received an alarming email off ucas verification saying if I did not provide them with certain details my application was going to be canceled. This was because I hadn't stated in my application I had already been to uni.

    I had to ask my college and school for confirmation of my results as UCAS accept that. They are both taking their time with this after me contacting them countless times. I rang UCAS to explain Friday and the woman I needed to speak to was out of the office. It is due to be sent in by the 7th. I am so worried they're going to cancel my application it's really worrying me...

    Any help on my situation would be extremely appreciated

    Thank you

    You should have declared that you had already been to Uni - to not do so is considered dishonest by UCAS and therefore they can consider your application to be fraudulent. This in theory allows them to cancel it.[Those applying this year - this includes you, so don't try and 'hide' retakes etc].

    Any form of 'dithering' now will look like you are trying to hide something - even if you aren't. So you do need to act quickly. Phone UCAS as soon as they open on Monday, email your college/tutors (and cc. this to UCAS so they are aware you are trying to sort this out). Keep phoning your college on an hourly basis until they provide the info needed by UCAS.

    Yes I understand. But as I explained to ucas having explained to the tutor my situation she already knew, I attended the same uni see so I just had to go through ucas.

    Thanks for the advice. Yeah I tried ringing Friday but the woman who's dealing with my case was out of the office. I've emailed her directly also so I'll phone back Monday. Exactly that's what I'm worried about. It's all really stressful
