    Hi everyone!
    I started filling in my application for academic year 2017 yesterday and I'm already quite confused.
    I'm filling in the education section. Problem is, I have some awards issued by different centres/school which I've NEVER attended.
    To make an example: I have a certificate of spanish as a foreign language issued by the Instituto Cervantes, but I never took a course there, I just studied spanish at my school and then I took the exam.
    Same goes for the University of West London: I have awards for music performance but I've never even SEEN the UWL, cause they just sent an examiner here in Milan.
    SO my question is: what the heck do I put in "when did you start?" and "...and finished?" It just won't let me leave them empty.
    I would just put the exam dates but problem is I have TWO certificates from the UWL, one issued in 2015 and the other in 2012 and I can't write I've attended it from 2012 to 2015 obviously hahaha

    Thanks to everyone who will try and help me out!!!!

    Just say you got it during school like you did here and just say the truth and say there's a bit of an error on the certificates or something

    Just put it down as part time for just the day/week/month you took the exam. It's pretty common when people do resits in a gap year, for example.
