    Yeah I mean I think my introduction is really impressive. Red could connote passion;this maybe what you've demonstrated in your PS for the course you're applying to

    That depends if you're applying for a vocational course - for courses leading directly to a career (like medicine, nursing or primary education) then having experience of working in the environment you're hoping to qualify to is very important. It's possible to demonstrate an understanding without direct experience in many cases but it's very helpful.

    For an academic course (including things like law and engineering) then work experience isn't vital in any way.

    Got it checked by all my teachers and it appears to be fine, might get it checked on the PS service on here but I'm pretty anxious about that.

    OK I'd say it's done just need to leave it for stsrt to check and make adjustments. I've had my teachers check it through and leave their feedback. I think it could use a few minor tweaks but we'll see.

    st Andrews defooooo but I have to retake some units so hopefully my actual grades will get pushed up. so I am going to play it safe and apply to maybe brighton or city then when my grades are improved(I want to get like A*AB if I work hard this year and my retake units) then I'm going to go through adjustment and go to st Andrews

    soz for the long paragraph. btw, where do you want to apply to?
