    Can referees see your grades in the UCAS form?

    If so, if there a way of hiding them, or could you leave them out and add them in after the referees have added their references?

    Yes, they can view your entire application and, no, it is not possible to amend or add to your application once you have passed it onto your referees. Your application is submitted to UCAS as soon as both of your referees have provided their references. Why do you ask?

    I would not want referees to see my A Level grades - they are embarrassing.
    My parents influenced my A Level choices and I didn't enjoy them, nor was I interested in them or did I find those subjects easy.

    It is mentioned in UCAS's guidance for referees on their website: "The referees’ system allows you to view all the information on the application."

    Who are your referees? Presumably you have picked people who have a high regard for you, I doubt that is going to change because of some results from a few years ago. If you are graduating or have graduated from university in the last five years, one of your referees needs to be a tutor or lecturer at your university and they certainly won't care about your A Level results because 1) they were enough to get you a place at the university and 2) they have much more up-to-date knowledge of your academic performance. I think you're overthinking this - they probably won't even look too closely at your application as they will want to get the reference sent off as quickly as possible!

    Teaching involves working with pupils who don't enjoy your subject, aren't interested in it and don't find it easy.

    Just a thought, hope it all goes well
