    Hello,
    I am currently filling out my UCAS application form and I am wondering whether to fill out the 'employment' section. Last year I did work experience for a year (not paid) so I will only state that in my personal statement. However, I did get a temporary 6 week contract job over Easter. I am just wondering whether I should bother filling this out just for a temporary job?
    Thanks for any advice

    You must include all paid work (and only paid work) in the employment section.

    Unpaid work MUST NOT be listed under the employment section. The UCAS guidance is extremely clear.

    It's unlikely but they can if they want to
