I have been thinking about what I want to do at university and I have had a right change of mind about everything, I want to do Chemical Engineering, but it don't have maths. I rang around the Uni's and they were happy to accept someone onto a the Degree's with a foundation year before.
But I was thinking of getting my personal statement out of the way, I know I need to put in all the normal stuff but do I need to mention why I need to do a foundation year, or mention anything about the foundation year?
Does it put you at any disadvantage by do a foundation year? as the grade requirements were pretty high anyway at ABB with the foundation year.

I put a little bit in my PS about the foundation year, mainly because I had some poor math scores in my qualifications that needed explaining. I basically needed to explain that those scores were a long time ago, why they were low, and that I've been engaging in a great deal of self study since then, and am applying for a foundation course to bring me up to speed.
I really don't think it'll put you at a disadvantage - and a lot of unis it'll save you from having to re-apply (I think) for your chosen degree course at the end of the year...
