Best not to because if they do you are 100% not going to get into that university. Also, if they ask you in the interview about it and you are on the spot, it’s hard to lie.

It's not worth it, they wouldn't care about the DofE, but they would care about you lying.

i just dont see why, do u think having silver dofe will be advantageous? having dofe nowadays is so overused, and its not relevant im not even putting mine on my ps, literally no point.

At every subject talk and other talk I have attended at a university (and I have attended several) they have said that they aren't interested in D of E. Schools push the idea, but in reality univesities don't care.

At interviews you will be quizzed about stuff on your personal statement, and if you are found out to have lied then they won't want you.

Don't lie.

What do you hope to achieve? Admissions tutors don't care about D of E, so why bother in the first place?

Its best not to because you get certificates out of this and what if they want to see it which they probably won’t but just be honest!

DofE is a great thing to have on an application but Bronze is enough, still shows you have done something. I have done all three stages but all I put was “I have done DofE” didn’t state which levels. If they want to know anymore, they will ask at the interview. But at least it is there, no lying included.

It's a really bad start, isn't it? The willingness to be deceitful before you've even started. Just try telling the truth.

The wanting to lie says a lot about you. It will backfire one day.
