    Oxford don't look at UMS btw :P

    And I got 'low' As - 243, 250, 256 and 2 x 263. Don't worry about it. It just means you won't slack off next year and fall flat at the final hurdle!

    That's what I thought...
    If you look closely at the separate Ox application form, you may find out otherwise...

    Erm, I don't understand.


    ..please? :p:
    I thought they only looked at MODULE grades...but apparently not

    As people have said about being able to mention UMS for Oxford, the notes for filling in the Oxford Application Form explicitly says for Referees:

    This section should be used to indicate where there has been disruption to the applicant's education, and educational context if this is not already included in the UCAS reference, for example:
    performance in particular modules (UMS scores)...
    So I don't know whether it is optional, whether they have enforced this...or it depends on cashed in grades...but there is definitely a space for UMS marks...not only module grades!!
