Basically, I had to resit year 12 because I got really bad grades that year - CCEEU
So instead of carrying on, I decided to retake the year at a different school to do different a levels and got AABB.. As I am now applying for UCAS to study at Durham, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and Aston with my A*AA predictions.
However, I am only putting the grades down that I got last year, so the AABB, do I have to put down the bad grades from two years ago, or can I just leave them out so that the university would not change their mind about me as they won't see them on the form?
Also, the a levels that I did bad in were Chemistry, maths and Biology (UEE), and I am applying for Business Management. At GCSE I got 2B's for Science (additional and core) and an A in maths.
What do I do?
You've answered your own question. You've said you want to conceal grades so they won't make a decision based on them. That's fraud. So no, you can't hide that information.
You need to declare it. Bear in mind that they'll be able to deduce that you've taken an extra year anyway so they'll want to know what that was about. In your UCAS personal statement, just make sure you reflect on the experience and how it's affected you as a learner and you'll be fine. That's good reflective practice which is what most professions try to encourage. Show some maturity and they'll respect it. Your situation is not that uncommon and they probably will have seen something to this effect before. Just be honest.**
You MUST declare all your results. To do otherwise is fraud - something that both UCAS and the Unis take very seriously.
You cannot hide retakes. The Unis can see details of your existing results (UCAS gets sent these by the exam boards) and once you are discovered they can, and often do, withdraw offers.
If there are extenuating circumstances that explain your retakes, ask each Uni what their process is for notifying them of this. If they acceot the reasons, they can overlook the retakes.
Whatever you do, dont ever 'lie', or try and hide stuff from Unis or UCAS. It simply isnt worth it.
