    So I already have my A-levels, that I completed in 2015. But I also have one AS level that I completed in 2014, but I put 2015 down by accident. It seems that the correct thing to do in this situation is to inform UCAS so they can tell the unis but I've already received all of my offers so I don't know whether I should contact the unis directly? One of them has asked me to send in scans of my certificates so they'll be able to tell from that. I'm worried this is going to invalidate my whole application.

    If its an honest mistake nothing is really going to happen. If you want to be on the safe side you can call the university and tell them you made a mistake. It's not like your committing fraud.

    It's an honest mistake, just contact ucas and call the universities up, it shouldnt do your offers any harm

    Email the details to [email protected]. Once they confirm that they've updated their records let all of your universities know about the mistake and correction.
