There's a question about your awards/scholarships on most of these TC/VS apps. I don't have any unfortunately!
How bad would it be to say I received the bronze award for Duke of Edinburgh and things along that nature?
If you have/had a TC/VS do they ask for evidence of these things?

as far as I'm concerned they don't but if you have an interview it can be a bit tricky because they may ask for proof... or you may have to describe things. I wouldn't if i were you just to be on the safe side...anyways from what I know no Uni really cares if you've done DofE because everyone does it...

Don't. You'd be better off leaving this blank than lying.

They won't systematically but might do for reasons you can't foresee.

For example I found out that one of the partners interviewing me has a daughter who does the same sport, so when he was bored a few days after he searched my name on the governing body's database to see how quick I was. If I hadn't turned up I'd have looked a right mug.

As Le Nombre's pointed out, although it may seem trivial it may come back to bite you.

Just be honest. You're not the only one.
