Hi,

Does anyone know if there is any point in mentioning extenuating circumstances in ones UCAS application if it's related to mental health but with the caveat that the applicant has no medical proof (i.e. no letter from the GP to confirm) of this?

Thanks

You'd need proof. Plus you wouldn't mention it, your referee would.

I don't think you do need medical proof, but you shouldn't talk about it in your PS. This is something your referee should mention in their reference. If your referee is unaware of your problems or you don't want to tell them, then I suggest you write an email to the admissions team at the unis you're applying to and explain your personal situation. It might not help, but better they know than not.
