    Hey there guys, I've finished my UCAS application (it's being sent off Thursday) but when I was browsing the pay tab it mentioned to ensure all of my educational history is listed and accurate.

    Basically, I am applying as a mature student at a college that I've studied at for the past five years (level 1-3 then subject change last year to IT). I've listed this college and all the qualifications I've obtained from here but haven't entered the secondary school I attended prior to 2010; this is because I received no qualifications as I didn't sit most of the exams (as I wasn't really in much due to circumstances).

    So basically what I'm asking is whether I list the secondary school or not.

    Thanks.

    Put it in...it'll be obvious you're witholding information if you don't. If you didn't receive any/many qualifications that wont make any difference. Your unis will be interested in your recent education history.

    There is no 'or not' option in this year's UCAS Cycle.

    Withholding any information will allow UCAS to cancel your application without prior notice.

    UCAS couldn't give a ****.

    Universities can (and will) retract and offer or remove someone from a degree course if they believe they knowingly submitted a fraudulent application.

    That isn't new for this cycle - it has been the case for years. And UCAS have been saying you must declare all educational institutions and qualifications has always been the case. The only recent change was the insistence on including U grades in 2013 and the clearer guidance on declaring certified AS grades in 2012.
