    Haha yes it does, that puts me at rest a bit
    I don't have any work experience either! only problem is I don't have volunteering either! fml

    I have decided on an extended project title though, and I'm giving my personal statement another week to write itself before i get very angry.

    I'm looking at zoology at sheffield, exeter, newcastle and royal holloway.

    ANY advice?!

    Hi there, I'm applying for Animal Science and Veterinary at Nottingham, Veterinary at Royal Veterinary College, Biological Sciences at Durham because I have an offer there, then Zoology at Newcastle.
    Does anyone have an idea of what university's are looking for in a person? Characteristic-wise?
    I'm gonna have to tailor my personal statement for bioscience/zoology/animalscience.

    I've been a few times, I only live about 20 minutes away by train (doncaster) so there'll be some familiarity! It's a lovely place

    How have you come up with an introduction? I'm having sooooo much trouble thinking of a first line or so that will make them read on

    Well done on getting it to 48 lines though mine is about 5 haha

    Yeah, I'm applying for St Cuthbert's because it has the right mix of self-catering/catering without having to pay for an ensuite room

    i had alot of trouble with an introduction/catchy first line when i was writing my personal statement last year. i started off with a general line i knew i was going to have to change and then as i was writing the rest of it a first line just popped into my head

    good luck though
