    Hi i was in a car crash in the year of my GCSE's. I injured my neck which led to a minor injury in my brain, causing me to have issues like nightmares and other mental issues, i had physiotherapy up to my exams. I did not have an advantage in my GCSE's as i did not mention that this had happened, but can i still write it in my personal statement. I acheived 6Bs and 4Cs as a result. Thank you for responses in advance
    Personal statement for your ucas you mean? That is something your referee should mention in your reference.
