Do I need to send a transcript?

First of all, please check this flowchart to see whether in your case a transcript is needed as part of your application.

What exactly is a transcript - what should it show?

If you will need to send a transcript please see the information about transcrips and example transcripts available on the university website:

In preparation for the admissions period, it is a good idea to obtain your transcript and save it as a pdf on your computer. The overall file size must not exceed 3MB.

If you are applying from a university and have already taken exams as part of your course then, in addition to your high school transcript, you will also need a university transcript showing the exams you have taken so far. If you are at university but have not taken any exams yet, then you will only need a high school transcript (though you will also need to provide curriculum details for your unviersity studies). Please read about applying from a university.

How to send your transcript

  • To send your transcript, you will need it saved as one pdf file. The overall file size must not exceed 3MB.
  • One of the My Cambridge Application questions will ask you to upload your transcript. The deadline will be 22 October in the year you apply.
