I used to do the 'putting the degree year but not DOB' thing a lot too
- although in my case it was because for various reasons I did my OU degree
parallel with high school so I got age discrimination (or possibly disbelief)
in the other direction.
The OU was bloody good fun though, quite a number of my friends in their 20s
and 30s are doing their degree that way at the moment and enjoying themselves
so I'd heartily recommend it as an approach.
