Fraud and similarity

UCAS has a dedicated Verification Team, to prevent and detect fraud in applications, and similarity in personal statements.
Relevant to
We have a responsibility to our applicants, course providers and stakeholders to screen applications for false, missing and/or misleading information and personal statements for patterns of similarity and to report our findings.

Our aim is to avoid anyone gaining from an unfair advantage and securing a place by deception. If you provide true, complete and accurate information and if your personal statement is all your own work, then you have nothing to worry about.
