    Currently in the process of filling out my ucas application.
    In the education section for GCSEs, I have a certificate with Additional Science B and separate certificate with Science B. Now there is an option on UCAS for Additional Science B but for the other I can either enter Science or Science: B Single Award? Help really confused.

    Also what do I put for qualification date?

    Thanks

    Is your science certificate a single grade? If so it’s a single award.

    The qualification date should match your certificates.

    It is on a separate certificate however it doesn't say single award on the certificate? Also there isn't a date on the certificate

    If there's a single grade it's a single award (double award science GCSEs have 2 grades - that's all that single award is making clear - that it's a single GCSE and not a double one)

    There must be a month/year on the certificate.

    Sorry just one more question. I am not sure if I did Mathematics or Mathematics A for my GCSE. Which one should I put? It only says Mathematics on my certificate but Mathematics A on my result slip

    If it says June on the certificates then it's June

    August is only useful for pending exam results.

    How can I change it if I sent it off? They are not wrong because August is when you get ur results.

    If it was actually wrong (which it isn't, you're wrong) then the applicant must email [email protected] immediately and change it.
