Has anyone honestly bent the truth on their PS?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    For example, claimed to have read a book on the course they're doing even though they really only read a couple of pages etc.

    'Honestly bent the truth'... bit of an oxymoron

    No, I didn't and I'm glad I didn't. At the end of the day I wanted to get into uni based on what I'd actually done, not my ability to lie :dontknow:. It's not worth it if you get found out, which is especially risky if your course/universities interview.

    Don't want to risk not getting into university because of lying

    No because our teachers kept telling us stories of people being caught out at interviews
    Wouldn't really have helped me anyway, I had enough to write about

    Do not do it, particularly if you have interviews.

    You mean like how I gave a speech on theological theories surrounding empathy and compassion to the United Nations last year at the age of 16? No. I haven't.
