    Is it wrong to not declare a result on your ucas application? I got a D for AS general studies (which isn't that bad considering I left answering the multiple choice paper till the last ten minutes then picked answers at random- yeah i wish i hadn't now!)
    Another thing- what do you do if you got a grade but didn't complete the course? I missed my german writing exam (yes, that was on purpose too- self destructive- moi?) and got another big fat (yet incomplete) D.
    The annoying thing is- i got the best mark in my class in the yr 10 mock! arrrrrgghhh

    Hmmmmm thanks. I think i can get away with it though because I changed schools between AS and A2 and had my results transferred- and on the new results sheet there was no general studies! What do you reckon?

    P.S sorry for the thread title!!!

    The declaration that you sign on your UCAS form promises that the information provided is true and complete this means that you can't *really* leave out exams/grades, no matter how good the reasons for getting a low grade
    yer you can

    i left out my predictaed Psychology grade at AS, i got a D in the end... i didnt put it on as all my others where B, C,C

    so it looked as if i didnt put in all my effort..

    You dont have to include it thou, but a D at AS is still points, and thats what you need, the points!

    At the end of the day, nobody is really going to check that everything you have put down is 100% correct. As long as you stay within certain limits, you will be fine.

    And surely if they did find out- it's not exactly a criminal offence is it?! I suppose if someone lied and said they got a better grade then that would be different!!!

    If you sign the declaration saying you've included everything and you haven't and get found out *at any point* (even after you've graduated) then the universities concerned can not only withdraw offers they're legally entitled to chuck you off the course/withdraw your degree award.
    i dont remember signing anything last year?! :confused: :eek:

    You can put your results as 'pending'?

    Im applying for German, and screwed up big time on my AS, got a D, and i'm applying for German at university.. my result is as 'pending'. I've got a good personal statement and my predicted grade is a B. My other grades are also good, so i'm hoping that's enough for offers!

    can't you just decline the general stuides? loads of people in my year failed critical thinking and just declined the grade so they didnt have to put it on their ucas form

    you dont have to include a bad result IF you declined it when u got ur results. i decline my U grade in physics as i didnt want to have to declare that! and others declined E's, D's etc. some people decline the lot, then u can just put them on and ur doing them in january or whatever.

    Is it ignorant of me to think that unis probably don't CARE about poor results that you got but haven't declared? Surely they're more interested in making sure you did get the results you've said you have?

    Yep I was only half joking, However I suppose universities won't like the fact I have taken GCSE maths twice and got a D both times so it is better to hide it. The RE exam was a joke. I never turned up to RE lessons and in the exam I just wrote the biggest crap ever. I am proud of my E

    I am ahamed that I didn't pass maths the second time though, I was desperate for the toilet but instead of putting my hand up and being escorted I left the exam early without checking all my sums. I must have really done badly in that exam.

    If you haven't "cashed it in" you don't have to
    what exactly do you do to 'cash in'?

    Hehe yes sadly I am a Morrissey fan. I have seen him at the Move Festival in Manchester this year. I tried to get tickets to his Earls Court gig but its sold out so me and my mate are going to Dublin to see him there. I am also going to see The Other Smiths tomorrow.

    I went to a cheesy engagement party last week and it was all YMCA stuff so I asked the DJ to play a Smiths songs, he looked at me is if I was some kind of deranged freak :cool:

    I am proud to me a Morrissey fan though because of their loyatly as shown when 52% of mancs voted Morrissey the best manc ever.

    if you're applying to uni's that exclude general studies, then i don't think they're going to pay much attention to it. I'm afraid you'll still have to declare the AS grade seeing as you didn't sign anything opposed to it.
