On my UCAS application i put National Diploma down instead of National Award &Certificate now i have a Unconditional OFFER from one of my unis which i took. The course i applied for is 300 ucas points when i have 200 and i called in and the women said its now at 240 ucas points what do i do someone please HELP sooo confused right now.. if i dont do something my family is going to kill me
from my experience there isn't a lot you can do, you don't have the UCAS points so unless the uni tells it's fine with 200 you'll need to pick a different one. doesn't your college have a careers department? talk to them.
All you can do is own up and apologise for the mistake. If you try to get away with it chances are you will get found out when your school forwards the results information to the university.
So tell the university that you made a mistake on the application. Also tell them that this is a course that you would really like to do and that you really would like to attend the university. Ask them if there is any way that you can take the course with the grades you have. Tell them as soon as possible so that least damage is done and hope that they are feeling generous.
If that doesn't work out, you then need to get back to clearing as soon as possible.
So you've got in right because its a unconditional offer? And just so you know the university received the results before you did therefore there really is no need to worry. If you have been accepted then just forget it and if you haven't then ring them up and explain the mistake you did on your application form. That's all you can really do I'm guessing.
