Hi everyone,

I realise this might be a dumb question, but if you've taken for example music exams privately, i.e. not through your school or another institute, do you still put them under your school on the form? I can't find any option to suggest otherwise.

Thank you!

No, you need to put it under the place you did the examinations. If you didn't do them at your school or another school, where did you do them?

Thanks for the response! But yikes this is going to be complicated them, I did them all at different places, some at houses (you can register your house for ABRSM exams) and some at other schools.

I'm applying for mathematics! I know music qualifications aren't that relevant, but I do have a piano diploma which forms part of my extra stuff in my personal statement.

I wonder the similar things for gcse: I didn’t take british gcse, though I had the equivalent things and official transcript from my school. Should I add the qualification on UCAS?

Ah that's the thing, UCAS is adamant that you have to declare all of your qualifications, but they don't give very much advice on how you go about doing so. It's pretty rubbish tbh. But I would say yes, if you have qualifications you should declare them, regardless of where they're from.
I haven't done this UCAS thing before though, so I might be wrong. Good luck with your application!

Yes.
All formal qualifications must be declared.
