How much educational information should I put on my CV?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 08 Jan 2010

When it comes to educational information and the CV then it depends on your circumstances to some extent.

For instance if you have just finished in education then your work history is of course relatively light.

In this instance then you would be expected to give reasonable detail - for instance the number of grades A - C you got at GCSE, A-level results and degree.

Once you are in the world of work then you should reduce the educational achievements, for instance you wouldn't typically breakdown the grades unless they were particularly strong, but rather just say "8 GCSE's, 3 A-levels"

However if you achieved top grades in everything then it is justified to say "11 A*'s at GCSE" etc whathever stage of your career you are at.

Also remember professional qualifications and so on as relevant as you go through your career.
