    Hi everyone,

    I know there's already something on declaring results, but I'm in a particularly odd situation.

    So I have a Brevet (french equivalent of GCSES), then I did IGCSEs too.

    But here's the thing:
    I did 4 ASs and one A Level in one year. Overall, I got A in my A-Level, and C, E, U in my ASs. Not great at all.

    So I quit and did the IB instead. I got 40 points, with 766 at higher and 766 at standard. And two core points.

    So I'm applying through UCAS (again because my uni choices and subject choices weren't great), and I'd obviously rather they see my IB than my A Levels... But do I need to give them everything? I know you're supposed to submit everything, but doesn't my IB over-ride the A Levels?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Do you think universities will be more concerned with OP's IB score?

    Since OP has only one complete A level, she's not going to be considered for a university place on the basis of that. Offers will be made on the IB, but that does not mean she can not put her A levels down. All exams taken which have a grade must be declared and not doing so is regarded by universities as fraudulent.

    This is what I was thinking... But I know in my heart of hearts that unfortunately I need to declare everything... Which is a real shame seeing as I'm going for Oxford and Edinburgh... Oh well. Thanks for your reply!

    Yes! I just hope they will discount them rather than them negatively affecting my application!

    Thanks for your reply, I'll include everything!

    I think that is quite likely. Good luck.
