    I have a degree that is less than a 2.1 honors. Can I resit A levels and apply for a second undergraduate degree without telling the universities that I have a previous degree?

    Well, aside from the fact that what you're proposing constitutes fraud, I'm curious as to what additional fraud you're planning on committing in order to explain away your three years between finishing school and supposedly starting your life. And I'm curious too to see how you'll get on convincing a referee to commit fraud as well.

    I'm also very interested to learn where you're going to dig up the £27k for fees and, assuming you are indeed applying for Cambridge, the college fees and accommodation fees as well.

    I did not know that you have to explain what you did prior to university. In that case, I guess I will apply elsewhere. Thanks for letting me know.

    What degree are you planning to study? Previous results aren't always considered relevant depending on the subjects involved

    You would have to declare your full academic record no matter which universities you apply to.

    The universities can then decide which aspects are relevant for the course you are considering.

    I think you have to declare all of your academic record.
