    Hi. I am an EU applicant, in section 7 page 3 they ask me to my high school transcript document in PDF.
    Do I have to go to an official transcription center? Or where can I get it? .
    Is it the same as an official translation?
    Thanks in advance

    How much detail are you meant to put on the 'topics' section? I'm a bit confused because you've hardly put any topics on. E.g. for Maths you just put 3 topics, but if I were to copy the spec you'd have to put:
    "Proof; algebra and functions; coordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane; sequences and series; trigonometry; exponentials and logarithms; differentiation; integration; numerical methods; vectors; statistical sampling; data presentation and interpretation; probability; statistical distributions; statistical hypothesis testing; quantities and units in mechanics; kinematics; forces and Newton's laws, moments."

    Hi, there. I am an international applicant. Do I need to ask my school for my qualification certificates again to give that as a transcript? I already have my grade sheet with marks and subjects written on it given by school.

    Hi! I am filling in my SAQ right now and was just wondering, I have 3 AS levels (my school still does them), so for the education section do i add "Biology – AS level (linear) Y12" or "Biology – A level (linear) Y12"? The content for the AS is also on the final A level paper, but it does not make it clear on the official document how to enter the information. Thanks for this video by the way, it's really helpful! 🙂

    Hi I have taken 9 gcses in the UK in 2019 so does that mean I don't have to submit a highschool transcript?

    Just a question I am filling my SAQ atm and I don't know if the picture you have to submit should be taken professionally?

    So if at school all of normal maths was done in year 12, then started further maths in year 13, do I add Mathematics – A Level (linear) Y12, and Further Mathematics – A Level (linear) Y13? Thank you.
