Qualifications entered in Apply

Changes to exam details entered in Apply?

If there are any changes to the exam details your students entered in Apply, let us know at, and let the universities and colleges know too. If results can’t be matched with what was entered in Apply, your students might be delayed in getting Confirmation decisions, or may lose their place.
