    I was just wondering how much weight they carry with universities if any at all. I mean, do they even view them if you haven't included them on your UCAS?

    If you have not submitted them through your UCAS application or your reference or the Cambridge SAQ (Supplementary Application Questionnaire) then the universities won't see them. And in the latter case, only Cambridge will see them.

    Well you have to ask your referee to put them in, if you wish for universities to know (excluding Cambridge).

    Unless you got like insanely high ones, probably a waste of time putting them in, as the referee's have a size limit also.

    Uni's don't see UMS scores unless your referee includes them in the reference, and this is rarely done.
    They don't even get the UMS on results day either, just the overall grade from the exam boards.
