    Tips for a perfect UCAS application to get into medicine? What are they looking for and what should the opening sentence be like? Struggling so much to get this all together- any help will be appreciated

    Do you mean your Personal Statement?

    If so, don't focus on the first sentence just yet. That's often the hardest thing to write. Start writing as much as you can about your work experience, extra curricular, etc. Then start to cut it down and re-word it.
    Don't use cliches.

    Also, look at what the Med schools want from the PS. Look at the schools that place high importance on the PS, and see what they want, because if you do all that, you can't have gone wrong.
