    What the title says basically, do I do it? I have grade 6 verse and prose and grade 6 acting with LAMDA (merit and distinction respectively) and a number of dance grades with BTDA (there's quite a few of them so I can't list them all). I know I definitely get UCAS points from my drama exams and some of my dance exams so do I put those on my application?
    Also I'm definitely taking my grade 7 LAMDA acting in November and my grade 8 LAMDA acting at some point next year (I think May) so should I also put those on as pending?

    Are you applying for a related course? You generally only get the ucas points if it's related.

    No, I'm applying for history. So is it pointless putting them on my UCAS?

    Okay thank you! On a side note, do you reckon it would be worth mentioning them in my personal statement?

    They wont be used in your offer conditions - you should still declare them on your education section.

    Okay thank you. For the ones I'm definitely taking but haven't taken yet should I put them as pending or leave them off?

    Yes! I did! But put dance in context ie. time management, people skills etc, ambition to learn skills and pick up information quickly etc.
