    No, don't lie. Very easy to get caught out and if you do, it could affect all your Uni applications.

    Although cheating, its not that bad if you lie about achieving an A

    Don't lie. You may well be asked to provide a copy of your certificates upon enrollment. You will lose your place and not be able to attend uni if this happens.

    I was asked to provide evidence of my GCSE grades once I accepted the offer from my uni so don't see how you would get away with lying,

    Don't lie. A girl in my sixth form did, UCAS found out, and she was banned from applying through it for 3 years.

    They can ask to see your exam certificate so don't lie. You could write on your form if there's space that it was 1 mark off an A.

    X post with 3/4 posters above me lol.

    Simple, just don't... But if you're desperate enough, ask around and see if a letter of recommendation works, and if it works, just get one from your previous tutor, i knew a friend who did that lol...

    Of course you shouldn't lie - and you know it (I hope).

    You can ask your referee to mention in your reference that you were one mark off the A grade, if that is the case.

    If you want to get banned from going to University then sure, go do so.

    Don't even bother, they will find out/

    Lying on your ucas is committing fraud and they can take your university place off you if they were to find out which they would at some point, your referee is meant to check your grades when you send your application to them so it's not just yourself who would get in trouble for doing so.

    If you're willing to commit fraud and get banned from applying to UCAS again for how many years, then yeah.

    Probably not - requirements are normally requirements and they'll want evidence that you're competent enough in Maths to cope with the course. Contact them and ask if they'd be willing to make you a conditional offer if you re-sat your Maths GCSE.
