    I have a few questions about what exactly Universities see on your UCAS applications now that A-levels have become linear, taking into the fact that not everyone had done AS exams this year because they don't count.
    1. Are all Unis able to see your AS grade + the marks you had gotten for that exam? (Do you have to declare AS grades to every university if they don't count)
    2. Can they see your other university choices?
    3. Whether or not you have had any remarks?
    4. Can they see the exact GCSE MARKS per exam paper?



    One more quick question. I had gotten a B in Maths GCSE but was 3 marks off of an A. I want my universities to be aware of this because it will help my application considerably. Am I able to ask my teacher to put it in my reference? Thanks for your help

    2: no
    3: yes
    4: dunno
    5: doesn't matter really, its a GCSE and most really want a B.

    1. You have to declare all certified AS grades (certified means there was an overall grade on your results slip not just module marks/grades) - universities decide what counts not applicants


    2. Not when you first apply but once you choose your firm and insurance choices then all your choices will be able to see your other choices. Also obviously if you apply for more than one choice at a single university they'll be able to see your other choices

    3. No - you put in your final grades as will appear on any certificates.

    4. No - again it's GRADES you put in your application.

    If you want a good mark mentioned then your referee should include it (although the difference between a B and an A for GCSE isn't going to make any difference at all - a high B is still a B).
