    Good point/true.
    The TSA is probably the most important part in being invited to interview. Just FYI, your personal statement will never seem perfect to you ...

    I have already ordered the preparation books you and Jack had recommended. They are on the way to germany the offical website has also some example papers and even if I struggeled with some of them I really like these kind of tasks
    do you have some additional study tipps for the TSA?

    One piece of advice for personal statements that I would say is that once you have sent your application, don't look at it again (unless you are invited to interview). So many people have looked at theirs and then seen mistakes or something, it is far better to be oblivious!
    Yep, if you send it to me on here then I'll read it, although ideally after the 20th June, once my exams are over.

    I would say read the books first and do the exercises in there. Then move on to past papers, starting with the earliest ones and ending with the most recent. As much as you may want to prepare, I would leave the past papers till last, so that you have enough left to do a few weeks before your exam actually starts.
    My biggest tip would probably be to start underlining things. I found this to be the most useful way of picking out the important information in what was quite a long passage of writing with quite a lot of insignificant information.

    If I think of any more tips I'll be sure to post.
    Thanks, hopefully they'll go well (and hopefully you'll be joining me in Oxford next year).
    No problem.

    Someone from TSR who did psychology (at royal holloway i think) did graduate entry medicine. Different universities may have different criteria for accepting people, but im sure psychology will be fine at some places.
