    I think you shouldn't write that do you really think that working in a library is going to make a HUGE difference.

    which is why i don't think he should bother lying
    he seems smart and likely to the grades
    therefore A JOB AT THE LIBRARY WONT MATTER

    if you want to do it then do it.
    if you get caught dont complain.
    if you dont get caught then enjoy uni.

    though its not something you SHOULD be doing, nobody can stop you and it is evident that you want to put it on your statement so why are you even posting on TSR? its obvious what responses you will get xD

    I've never worked or volunteered - not to say it is necessary for A natural science degree.

    Can I lie about volunteering in a library? Or something along those lines?

    My PS is looking good sending it off next week but need that extra thing in it

    Help pls
    Your referee will read your PS and will check it - certainly if you say you have work experience that they don't know about.

    1) you'll fail at your interview because interviewers aren't idiots
    2) people who actually have to work hard to find work experience will hate you
    3) if you're having to lie about library work experience, your personal statement can't be that great to begin with

    don't mean to be harsh, but it is what it is
