I think it depends on what school you go to whether or not you put your core skills in. Some might be fussy and make you do it but there's no real need to, so I've been told. Like people have said, the uni's are inmterested in your subjects and grades not the core skills.
My form has just been sent to UCAS.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

I think you should put in your core skills in but I don't think you are required to put them in.

The following is taken from the UCAS website:

Anyway, I'm sure your teachers do know best...

My application has been sent away! I received an automated letter from the University of Strathclyde.

"We are delighted that you have applied to the University of Strathclyde. We will be making a decision on your application and transmitting it to UCAS as quickly as possible. UCAS will then let you know our decision."

I don't really want into Strathclyde. I hope Glasgow replies quickly.

Can someone explain 'Unconditional' and 'Conditional'? I get mixed up!

I'm not bothered between strathclyde and glasgow, both seem good.
Unconditional - you're in!
Conditional - you're in if you do this, this and this for us

Unconditional means that you have a guranteed place at University, i.e. you don't need to get any grades this year.

Conditional means that you have to meet the University's requirements they set you for this year, e.g. they could give you a conditional offer of AAB

What do you think will happen with Glasgow if I have:

Higher Computing - A
Higher Physics - A
Higher Maths - B
Int 2. Chemistry - C

Do you think they'll let me to 'Maths/Computing/Physics' in the Science faculty? Or do you think they'll want more qualifications?

What are the entry requirements?

Even if you do meet the entry requirements, it doesn't mean you have an unconditional offer. Other factors such as your personal statement, your reference and your desire to study your chosen subject(s) are taken into account by the admissions people.

The entry requirements are BBB, but that's if your Highers are classed as science subjects, which all three of mine are.

So, I have AAB and the entry requirements are BBB

This year i'm doing (with predictions):

Adv H Maths (A/B)
Higher Accounts (A/B)
Higher Chemistry ©
Higher Geography (B/C)
Int 2. Information Systems (A)

I've seen all my references and their pretty good, and my referee said my Personal Statement was 'superb' smile.gif

Based from the above, you stand a good chance of getting an unconditional imo.

That's what I think, but who am I to judge.

One of my friend's parents is involved in admissions for the science faculty at Glasgow and he told me that they very rarely read the personal statements for these courses, they are more interested in the raw grades as there is plenty of spaces for these courses. He also told me that sometimes they will give unconditionals or conditional offers slightly lower than the requirements if you have almost the grades and are likely to do well this year.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Urrrrrrgh! I'm so annoyed! I can NEVER EVER find my guidance teacher EVER. She's never in the guidance base, she's never in her office and we don't get her for tutor time anymore so I can't see her then. My ucas form has been completed and sent to her, but I need to see her before it gets sent away [I still have a few questions and queries about it].

I'm guessing my form is NEVER gonna get sent. FYNARRGGHHHH!!!!!

I think it takes about a week... I got mine after a week.

It should tell you on UCASapply whether it has been processed or not.
