Also what your school did was very underhanded too, as schools should not be covering up how an individual performed in any of their qualifications as some medical schools do look down on resits and sometimes will immediately reject applicants who have resat any of their GCSE's, e.g. Dundee.

Its actually stated on UCAS that you have to declare all of your qualifications, as it's dishonest to say you achieved a grade that you didn't on the first sit.
For retakes it would state ''November'' anyway and therefore its quite obvious its a retake. Unis could ask for further info

That's a good point but not true for all retakes. For example, I have retaken my maths over a span of two years. So the first year I took maths - alongside other GCSE's - I failed it, therefore I chose to retake the following year alongside more GCSE's. As a result, if I had not declared my initial first sitting the universities would have had no idea I was retaking, as they would have assumed that I took my GCSE's over the span of two years, therefore it would have been dishonest of me.

However, it still does not change the fact that you are supposed to declare ALL of your qualifications. Including the ones you have failed, resat or have gotten a bad grade in.

Fair enough. Let's just leave it at both our schools being different in how they approach UCAS forms.

That does make sense in some circumstances but at the same time for a person who's retaken in the same year, just November (of the GCSE sitting for their year) should be fine. The persons application has been sent off and there's nothing he/she can do about declaring it, if unis want it they can ask.

Yep just seen it now. Has anyone receive confirmation of any received evidence for criteria if you sent some via email? As I sent mine in 10 days after applying as I was expecting a form, like all the other uni's, so don't know if it's worth calling them.

Ok thanks, I'll have to call them up soon then, I'd hate to be rejected on the basis of late evidence.

So you won't be sent out a form, instead, you have to email them evidence that you meet their non-academic criteria. If you take a look at their entry requirement section it has an email address and states the criteria that you have to send evidence for.

I think your school just have to write a letter that confirms that you are a care leaver.

Ask your school to provide you with a letter to prove you receive bursary or free school meals, scan it and send to them. They decide who to call for an interview based on the contextual indicators, how many do you meet?
hi, should I email my UCAT bursary entitlement? also I meet only 3 of those entry requirements, Does it mean I won't receive an interview? thank you
