For example LSE requires mostly 7’s on your exam, how would they check that you got these? Would they ask through UCAS/exam boards or ask for the GCSE results paper?

I was asked to send pictures of my gcse result certificates to the uni I applied to. You also have to put them on your ucas application

Either with your unique learner number via UCAS or asking to see your certificates if they’re not available online.

Do UCAS verify whether they are correct?

In most cases unis get them directly from UCAS, who ge them directly from the exam boards.

If the uni has asked for certificates, it's up to them how they verify them.

None of which should present a problem as you'll definitely be declaring your actual grades on your application.

All Unis will get a data-feed from the Exam Boards later in the Admission cycle - so if you are thinking of lying about this, forget it as you will be found out.

Explaining to your school and parents why UCAS suddenly cancelled your entire application will be highly embarrassing.
