I never recieved my A level results even though I was told I'd be emailed and posted it by the exam department. The UCAS deadline is gone and I don't want to delay my application any further. Do I have write ALL my qualifications down? By the way, I likely recieved just a U for most subjects anyway, and am applying for a foundation year.

Yes. You need to put down all of your qualifications.

If your qualifications aren't that good, it might be worth considering Access courses too? They are college courses for adults who want to go to Uni but don't have the normal entry requirements. You could do that for a year and then apply to go straight into Year 1 of a degree.

Will I be in trouble if I don't? And rejected if the uni find out?

From UCAS:


If we, or a university or college, have any reason to believe that you or your referee have:
  • left out any relevant information, including qualifications you have completed, qualifications with an unsuccessful grade or qualifications for which you are still awaiting results
  • given false or misleading information

we may take any necessary steps to check with you and other parties, including universities, colleges and examination and awarding bodies whether the information you have provided is accurate or complete.
We have the right to cancel your application without refunding your application fee if we determine (having carried out any necessary checks), or have reasonable belief, that your application contains false information.


-

So yes.

What is the difference between an Access course and foundation year? I was advised to apply for a foundation year so that's what I did. Should I have applied for Access instead...? Is that also taught by good universities?

No, the Access courses are taught at local colleges not Universities. They are an alternative to A levels as they are aimed at people aged 19+
It's just another option and wouldn't take any longer as it is instead of the Foundation Year.

Believe it or not meeting new people on an access course is something to look forward to. My bunch always looked out for one another and all got through with flying colours.
