Yes as long as it's on UCAS ( there's a section for this stuff).

What do you mean by that? You need to submit it to ucas? or mention it? or do you mean that as long as ucas mentions the disorder?

There is a section on ucas that asks you to declare any health conditions. The unis will see this declaration.

Ah okay. Thank you. If you don't declare it will they discriminate against you in the application process? What if you do not wish to submit such information?😂

I just checked on my 2018 Apply account and the section we're discussing is called Disability/Special needs, and it's a dropdown box to fill in.

You won't be discriminated against. It's up to you. Truthfully I would tell them now. You can get help (DSA) and declaring it now means a lot less hassle down the line.

What the others have said is true: universities are not supposed to discriminate against you if you declare you have a medical/mental health condition.

However, if you're planning to become a doctor, you will have an ongoing duty to ensure that your symptoms are adequately controlled to enable you to do the job safely, and to declare any lapses in your health that might impair your ability to work. Basically if you're open about it and taking care of yourself (i.e. seeking appropriate help when needed and not forcing yourself to soldier on if and when you're too unwell to work), you'll be fine.
