    Hi there,

    Was hoping someone could give me advice on whether or not it is possible to list academic prizes I achieved in my first undergraduate degree on the UCAS form when I apply to undergraduate medicine.

    I think these would boost the chance of success of interviews etc but I can't see any field to input these achievements.

    Thanks in advance!

    I haven't used UCAS since 2006 so I can't help with whether there actually is a way or not, but someone else might come along and clarify that. However, you can always politely ask your referee, if they're an academic one who was in any way connected to the department you got the prizes from (or if the prizes were national/whatever), to mention them in or at the end of your reference.
