Undergraduate Document Submission – Transcripts

The Undergraduate Document Submission (UGDS) facility has been introduced to make the provision of the High School/University Transcript as straightforward as possible for our applicants. The following guide will help you determine whether or not you are required to submit a transcript (High School and/or University). If you are required to upload both a High School Transcript and a University Transcript, you will need to combine them to create a single PDF.

All applicants are required to supply their UCAS Personal ID number when submitting a transcript.  If you are completing the Cambridge Online Preliminary Application (COPA) as part of your application, please also ensure that you provide your COPA Reference Number if you have it.

By 'High School Transcript' we mean a record of your academic achievement to date in your secondary school/college examinations, which are usually taken in the last two years of schooling (if you are currently studying at a University, you are required to provide a University Transcript). For most students, the transcript will be an official document or certificate from your school/college/University which lists the subjects you have studied and the grades/qualifications that you have obtained. Please provide as much information on your examination performance as possible. Where possible, please also include details of any internal assessments that you may have undertaken. Please do NOT include references, detailed project work or any non-academic achievements.

You will find an example of a High School Transcript here.

Please use the flow chart below to determine whether or not you are required to submit a High School Transcript. If you are currently studying at a University, please also see the information below the flow chart.

Students currently studying at a University

You are required to submit a University Transcript as part of your application to Cambridge. Please note that your application will not be considered unless a transcript is received.

  • If your University Transcript is available to you at the time of application, you must submit it then
  • If your University Transcript is not available to you at the time of application, you must submit it directly to the College (or the Cambridge Admissions Office in the case of open applications) as soon as it is available.

If you are required to submit both a High School Transcript and a University Transcript, your application will not be considered unless both are received.

If the original transcript is not in English, you will need to have it translated and authorised, ie signed or stamped, by an official translation service or by your school/college/University.
