    So I've already sent off my UCAS and recieved 3/5 offers and at the time I had the choice to let the institutions aware that I had mental health issues in the past. However I decided to not include the information as my issues are in the past and I didn't see the point. But I'm now going back on anti depressents and I'm concerned that this could affect my performance in my A Level exams. Should I send an email to the five univeristies I've applied to in order to let them know my situation? Do you think that my offers will be affected or should I wait until I've decided my first and firm choices and then just make those two places aware? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Any offers you receive wouldn't be affected negatively, it depends on their extenuating circumstances policy whether telling them would mean they would be more linent with your offer, however if you do make them aware it would be easier to get support when you're actually at university.
