I'm wondering if there's any point in adding modules for my qualifications. Does it look worse if I don't? I just feel like it makes the application look cluttered.

Thanks in advance.

Yes definitely, fortunately my AS modules all scored A so I felt it made my application stronger, e.g. I didn't scrape a grade if you know what I mean. It may have helped me get all the offers I've got so far.

Thanks for the reply. It's just that in Scotland, our modules are 'pass or fail', there's no A/B/C. Also, I'm not sure what it's like in England, but modules here mean nothing, they're just things you have to pass in order to sit the exam. It means I end up having a bunch of passes written on my qualifications section, concerned that might make it look worse for any English unis Will leave them there for now though.

For scottish qualifications universities wont be worried about your module results (and if they are then they can contact you or your reference directly to find them out)

Some universities require you to put module information into UCAS, however this is only a small range of universities that say this. Most are satisfied with just overall grades. If you're unsure, they maybe contact the universities you're applying to, just for your peace of mind.
