    '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.
