    What happens if you leave out a module when the university asks for your module scores?

    They'll just go out of their way to personally ask you for it at a later date; there's nothing to worry about.

    They'll say to each other "this fella's hiding something" but probably nothing more.

    I wouldn't recommend leaving a UMS score/grade out because it'll stick out like a sore thumb.

    Thanks for your advice, but how would it stick out like a sore thumb?

    If you're leaving out one or two modules out of say 10, they may be suspicious. They will most likely think you're hiding something.

    For example, If I were an admissions tutor and for A-level Maths I saw...

    MATHS - A
    C1 - 95
    C2 - 90
    M1 - 85
    C3 -
    C4 -
    S1 - 88

    I'd think they clearly cocked up C3 and C4, and are ashamed of their results. As based on those scores, they could have got as low as 61/100 (C) for both C3 and C4...

    Why not just declare it in the first place?

    If you have something to hide then you've answered your own question.

    Which university is asking for it?

    Are Universities allowed to request UMS? I thought it was just Cambridge who requested it...

    They can ask whatever they want.

    I think Durham and UCL request it for some courses, for example.

    Did you put your UMS for maths modules on UCAS? I thought you weren't meant to unless a university asks.

    Not on UCAS, but I will on the Cambridge SAQ.
