Hello, I am an American senior in high school, I really need help on my UCAS application, and I do not have much time, as my application is due on October 15 since one of the colleges I am applying to is the University of Oxford. I spoke to an advisor from the Across the Pond company, but she said that she wouldn’t be able to answer my questions since I am not applying to one of their partner schools. I have been doing a lot of research, but I have not found clear answers. Now I feel extremely stressed because I have no idea what to put on the Education section of the application. My issue is that I am in an early college program where I will graduate with a high school diploma as well as an associate degree from a community college. I have entered two schools- my high school and the community college I am attending. I do not know how I would enter the classes I have taken. Here are my main questions:
- Do I enter the community college classes I have taken under my associates degree section? I ask this because some of my high school classes and college classes were intertwined. For example, for both my high school diploma and my associates degree, there was a requirement for two Spanish classes; I had the option of choosing to take those classes at either the high school or the college. I chose to take them at the college, but they also fulfilled the high school requirement.
- Do I add classes I am taking next semester and list the grades as pending?
- Do I enter the grades as letters (such as A, B, etc.) or the exact number?
- Do I need to include classes that I have taken since I was 11 years old/in middle school? I read an article that said to list your education history since the time you were 11 years old, but I do not know if this is true. If so, what would I list the qualification as (since for my high school I entered "high school diploma")? Would I need to include end of year exams and scores from middle school as well?
If there are any advisors reading this or American students who have applied to UCAS in the past who can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
