    If it was anything at all to do with violence I definitely would declare it. If it was for say shoplifting then that might not show up but I would still declare it. Cant you ask the police station that gave you the reprimand whether it is still on file?

    What is the wording of the UCAS statement you are being asked to sign? If there is any doubt, you need to err on the side of disclosure and you must not (under any circumstances) complete the form dishonestly.

    Most offences that led to a reprimand at age 13 will not have any negative impact on your application or subsequent career. Lying (or appearing to be dishonest) on your medical school application could have substantial consequences further down the line...
