That's interesting. I'm an international applicant from the US, and many of the universities have requested official and certified copies of my high school/university transcripts as well as my exam scores. It seems that it would be difficult to hide bad results this way, but I could be wrong.

IB results are verified directly by IBO to UCAS.

Omitting results might be forgiven by universities for international students but the "bad" results are known.

emm...Many of them are completing or completed IAL OR CIE Alevel Exams;They hide bad results but seems no penalty at all;

Some are changing grades for their school transcript[which is quite normal for students in my countries applying for US as US Colleges asked for GPA]

I am just wondering if it is British Uni, want some fresh cash so they just check whether they pass the condition offers or not

I am not talking about student studying IB but for Alevel[CIE and IAL],it seems clear for international students[at least in my country] there are no penalty at all for hide retakes or hide bad Alevel results ;

Most students just put their best three Alevel results to pass condition


May you simply give me a example of a international student 's UCAS application is cancelled due to hide grade or hide retakes?

I just wonder why...it is UCAS not check at all?

You're assuming that the other qualifications are not picked up by UCAS/universities.

In reality the other attempts will be matched to applicants by UCAS/exam boards. Universities are just more willing to overlook omitting grades in international applicants who are likely to have less support for the UK admissions system then UK applicants.

Plus if they're admitted and then fail the university still has the tuition fees.

Do you understand the principle of confidentiality?

If you're looking for excuses to submit a fraudulent application because you believe you wont get caught or punished then you wont find them here. An application that does not disclose all the required information IS fraudulent and CAN be rejected at any point (if that's what a university wants to do) including after the start of the course.

If you want to risk it because you don't believe that you'll be caught or punished then go ahead. You've been warned of the chances of being caught (extremely high, pretty much 100%) and the possible consequences. You're an adult and that means living with the consequences of your decisions.

Actually,a fraudulent person call me fraudulent,some people in this forum are not working for UCAS BUT pretend to be a UCAS staff

I hope you are not thinking of applying to a British university.

To be honest, I don't think it is that easy for international students to sneak themselves into good universities as OP claims. I'm from Norway myself and I applied to King's College, amongst others, and they asked me to supply official transcripts to prove my grades
