i had previously been to uni however failed my first year, i did not get a certificate og higher education or any sort of qualification from it. now i am reading conflicting information about whether i have to put this on my form or not?? nothing on the ucas form mentions you have to mention it, the education sections says you need to enter all qualifications and grades. but i dont have that from uni. and considering i didnt get any qualifications, i dont think i have to? can somone please confirm whether UCAS requires you to declare it if you didnt achieve any qualifications or results?? or link me somewhere where it confirms that i have to??
If it were me then I think failed exams are included because that makes it a complete record. That is relevant information imo. I also think it comes under the heading of a qualification with an unsuccessful grade, even if its just that year.
Check with UCAS as you read it differently.
Tbh you just sounded as though you only wanted advice that said you didnt have to disclose the fact you failed the year becayse it doesnt do you any favours. Believe it or not that is why it's relevant.
We have already told you its relevant information, fails are part of an unsuccessful record and you will not be giving a complete record. Suit yourself though. Check with UCAS.
You obviously dont wish to tell them, then so don't..
They specifically say somewhere that you have to include failed U grade A Levels, so I assume it's the same with failed university modules.
You have to list all places where you have studied since age 11 in your education section (the help text clarifies this on ucas apply).
Did you pass any modules? If so then you DO have a formal qualification (undergraduate credits are a formal qualification even if they don't add up to enough to gain a certhe).
If you don't declare it universities will find out. It will then be at their complete discretion whether they want to accept an applicant (or expel a student) who knowingly made a fraudulent application.
If you want to risk this then knock yourself out - you're an adult and taking decisions and living with the consequences of your choices is part of that. Mentioning previous study in your application actually demonstrates that maturity to universities. Withholding it and applying fraudulently demonstrates immaturity and an attitude that you think rules are optional for you. Guess which attitude is appealing to universities?
