Is it illegal to lie on your CV?

I've never been to school, so I never got any qualifications. I could never get a job because people didn't take me seriously, they thought I had had an interesting background but didn't want to hire me. So I lied on my CV and said that I'd done 6 GCSEs and 3 A levels. No ones ever questioned it, but is it illegal? show more I've never been to school, so I never got any qualifications.
