    First if you are16 you could not have been looking for a job for ages./

    Do not lie on your resume.

    No, tell the truth. You may be lucky and they take your word for it, you may not. Lying on your CV, especially later on, will come back and bite you. You may get the sack, you may even be prosecuted if you got a job, and therefore pay, on the basis of a qualification you didn't hold.

    Yes and no... it depends on the jobs you are going for. If it is something like working in supermarket or a clothes store then it is unlikely they ask to see the certificates.

    However, if it is an office job or something along those lines it is likely an employer will ask to see the certificates.

    NEVER lie on a CV. Employers will find out about your GCSEs as they ALL demand to see your result slips/certificates.

    How significant is the potential on your pastime? are you able to verify greater to fill in the gaps? in case you tell them you would be fired, so attempt to hid it and study as much as you could from people who've that potential. and don't do it returned, its ok or flourish on skills, yet no longer outright lie.
