    On the online application it asks you if you've got any sort of conditions, and under this is depression.. At the mo' I'm getting treatment for it and have been diagnosed with it, must I declare it?Even though by the time I enter uni I hope to be over it?
    Also, what difference does it make?
    Thanks

    They can take it into consideration with your grades, and might help you if you miss your projected grade by a few points or so. It's just so that they have a more rounded picture of who they're dealing with, mostly.

    Not at all. It's only so they can ensure adequate support is provided.
