Hi guys, I broke my leg last year at the start of school playing for my school in sports. I subsequently missed a month of school since I was bed bound ( as per instructions from my doctor ). I know this affected my year in general especially since I found it so difficult to catch up on my A levels and as a result I was a mark off an A in my AS exam I took in the same year. Would it be plausible to reference my accident in my UCAS application as a contributing factor to my B in my AS?

Are you suggesting putting it in your personal statement? If it wasn't listed as an official mitigating circumstance and verified by the exam board then I can't see where else you would put it into your application or if it would even be considered

Personal statement. Is that bad or not?

I’ve got a note from the doctor..... I have enough proof to actually prove my fracture so that won’t be a problem. My question is would it be worth mentioning on my personal statement??

I wouldn’t put it in your personal statement, it sounds like you’re just making excuses for yourself. If you submitted your doctors notes to the exam board at the time and had it approved then there will be something attached to your exam results to explain and/or the grades would’ve been adjusted to compensate. If not, there’s not much you can do about it now. Putting it in your PS will be a waste of word count, you should focus on making it as impressive as you can rather than putting stuff about your accident in there, the admissions officers won’t pay it much attention if it’s not verified by the exam board

What about academic reference from my tutor?
