    It isn't even in the UK if your profile is correct
    True. Living on this tiny island has finally came in useful.

    This system does seem unfair on English pupils, you would think that the same rules apply to everyone. Some of my friends have received unconditional offers without declaring their AS grades (some of which were pretty poor).

    UCAS has posted some information about qualification reform on their website. Most interestingly, if you go to the bottom and click on qualification reform statements (in red) you will find a digest of different uni's policies on the matter https://www.ucas.com/advisers/guides...ication-reform

    The Cambridge link on that page is broken or, rather, redirects to a generic page. I think Cambridge have removed their earlier guidance (advising potential applicants to take AS-Levels if at all possible) because the new assessment regime supercedes it.
