    Change them to something else — try using ALT+0151 instead.

    Do you still have it saved on your computer? If so, did you write it in Word and then copy + paste it in Notepad?

    ALT+0151 is a dash that looks like — but I'm fairly sure it gets turned into a hyphen by UCAS's system. You can usually put it in on a laptop by turning numlock on and holding the Fn button as well (if you have one).
