I'm curious how universities will look at an Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award (Top in Country)? Will it increases my chance at getting offers? Should I put it in my application?

P.s. I'm an international student and I got two of those for IGCSE

Thanks

Your referee can mention it yes but bear in mind that most applicants will have some achievements like this so it won't necessarily make you stand out.

Ummm no, most people don’t get these type of awards. It’s tww, three or maybe four That usually gets these awards. Everyone do not get selected. It’s the really the top few who gets these awards limited to the board they have sat.
