Hey,

'For 2021 entry, Colleges will normally require transcripts only for applicants who have not taken six or more GCSEs, or five or more Scottish National Qualifications, in the last three years.'

I took over 6 GCSEs in Aug 2017 and now its Sep 2020, 3 years have narrowly passed and I'm applying to Cambridge now, so does this mean I have to upload a High School Transcript?

If so my questions are:

1) What is a 'Student Number' as stated on the transcript, is it UCAS Personal ID Number?

2) I noticed although the transcript is required if you haven't taken GCSEs within three years, it asks for 'record of your academic achievement to date in your high school/college examinations, usually for the previous year of your study.'

So if I've gone to a separate secondary school (high school) and college (16-18 sixth form) would I have to email both institutions for a high school transcript? Or if the Sixth form I moved to has a record of my GCSE grades can they simply state them, and confirm.

3) on this link :
It states:
https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....b_students.pdf

"Please provide any relevant background information about your school/college, if appropriate, in the box
below."
What such 'background information' is relevant?

Either probably fine but if you're not sure, ask the College you are applying to?
