Grades/QCF Value & More watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello. I've almost finished my UCAS Application, however I'm unsure of a few things.

    1) I'm not sure what to enter for the qualification date for pending results. I'm doing a level 2 functional skills course at the minute (mature student) but I'm not certain as to when I'll get this qualification. Obviously I select pending from the drop down box but it says I need a qualification date. I could enter July or August 2016 but I don't want to blag it. Does this really matter?

    2)Do I need to enter ALL my qualifications, even for a college course I didn't complete? I don't actually have any grades for it on my certificate. That would look bad.

    3)I finished the first year of an Extended Diploma recently and got my certificate recently. It has a list of the modules with the grades on it but also a credit value. Is this the same value I should put in to the "QCF credit value" field? Each unit says 10 credits so I assume so. Just making sure...

    Apologies, this is all fairly new to me. I haven't really thought about qualifications for a long time. I also lived in Scotland. Different system entirely.
